Configuring and running simulation : Exploring the Progress OpenEdge BPM Simulation perspective
 

Exploring the Progress OpenEdge BPM Simulation perspective

The Progress OpenEdge BPM Simulation perspective in the Business Process Modeler interface provides a central location where you can view or edit all the simulation parameters for each of your simulation scenarios. This section describes the Progress OpenEdge BPM Simulation perspective user interface.
The commonly used panes and views in the Progress OpenEdge BPM Simulation perspective are described in the following table.

Description
Project Explorer View
The Project Explorer displays the contents of active projects, including the Simulation project. It consists of a hierarchical view of all the files that make up the active project.
Simulation Control Editor (or Simulation controller)
The Simulation Control editor contains the following three sections.
*Scenarios, to add and remove scenarios. For details, see Adding a scenario.
*Processes, to add (or remove) processes. It also displays the current processes, performers, and resources in the project. You can view (and edit) the properties for added scenarios, as well for each individual process (and its worksteps), connector, path, performer, and resource in the Properties view.
*Controls, which contains controls to start, stop, pause, exit the simulation run, as well as set the speed of the simulation. For operations, see Running a process simulation.
Properties view
Allows you to view (an edit) the properties for a selected item in the Simulation Control Editor. You can define (or edit) properties for the current simulation project, as well as for each of the added processes, worksteps, paths, performers, and resources. You can define the objectives for each of these components (see Defining objectives) and manage resources (see Managing resources).
Processes view
Consists of a Process tab for each of the added processes. Each Process tab comprises of the:
*Show Process drop-down list, which lists the current process and inline subprocesses (if any). For information regarding inline subprocess, see Defining an inline subprocess.
*Diagram view, which displays the process template diagram.
