Simulation review progress
The progress of a simulation can be reviewed in several ways:
- In a log report. This contains the output from the simulation engine, and contains any warnings or other important information generated at each timestep during the model run.
- Output displayed on the GeoPlan window. The GeoPlan provides powerful tools for graphically displaying the changing state of the network over the period of the simulation.
- Output displayed on the Long Section view.
- Output displayed on the results versions of the grid views.
More detailed results for specific network objects
You can use simulations reports to display details about the current selection on one or more graphs.
You can use non time varying reports to display details of all data that is not time-dependent for the currently selected network objects.
You can display summary results for a network object on the object property sheet. These results display a results snapshot for the current timestep in the simulation.
You can also display summary results for one or more network objects using labels. These labels display constantly changing results as the simulation is replayed. You can also freeze the simulation at a timestep to view snapshot results.
Results can be exported to MapInfo or ArcView.
Results can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet by generating a custom report. If you drag a custom report into a network with simulation results, an extra worksheet containing simulation results will be included in the Excel spreadsheet for each type of object.
