Run Simulation and Proceed with Results
After you configure the simulation scenario, click Run simulation. The program generates virtual timelines according to configured rules. Once the simulation is finished, select the Results tab that becomes available. It represents the following subtabs:
Shows the general process information: how many timelines were generated, their duration, and cost.
Shows the results broken down by schema milestones.
Shows generated transitions, their amount, duration, and cost.
Transitions' duration depends on the configuration of the time distribution histograms and the time spent waiting for resources. For details, see Nodes and Transitions Configuration.
- Resources (optional)
Shows waiting time and processing time for resources if resource demand is configured.
You can export each tab as a CSV file:
- Select the needed subtab.
- Click Export as CSV.
- Select the type of file: Spreadsheet or Native.
Choose Native to get a CSV file without formatting.
Click Delete results to clear all generated results. Now you are able to reconfigure the selected scenario and perform a new simulation.
You can compare the scenario results to the current set to see how the simulation affects the extracted process. Click Compare with mined set to add its statistics to the results.
You can also add other scenarios' results. Click Compare with... and then select the simulation(s) to add their results to the tab. You can select a simulation only if you clicked Run simulation for it. To remove other simulation results from the tab, click Clear comparison.
Important. If you delete results for a scenario, it will not be available for comparison. To get the results again you should rerun the simulation. Consider exporting results as a CSV file before deletion.
Simulate the current behavior to create a base for comparison
For example, you look for a solution to enhance a particular process. It may be helpful to create a scenario that has only mined statistics as a configuration and obtain its results. In this case, you can easily compare all newly created scenarios with this "default" one to see how new simulations can possibly improve the process.
You may search for a solution that decreases the average transition time between particular events. Configure the simulation scenario and run it. Open the Transitions tab in Results and compare results for the scenario that simulates the original behavior.
Quickly create multiple scenarios
You can easily test different scenarios and compare their results. If you want to check how these or those changes affect processes, you do not need to create the whole scenario from scratch every time. Just duplicate a scenario and reconfigure it. This allows creating multiple scenarios and testing various process changes quickly.
Open the Results tab and compare outcomes for several scenarios. If event costs are configured, you may want to select the most effective scenario in terms of money.
