NX supports the use of NX Nastran external superelements via its assembly FEM capabilities. The external superelement is represented via an OP2 file that is created by a component reduction solution (NX Nastran SOL 103 Superelement in terms of NX supported solutions). 


I suggest that you search the NX online help for the following article:


Using superelements in an assembly FEM


It will give a brief review of superelements in NX, but the right hand column "Learn more about" should have many more articles describing the NX processes that support superelements.
