Properties of a Dashboard Element

A dashboard element is a graphical representation of one or several statistics collected during the experiment execution. You can set up a dashboard element by setting its properties in the Properties dialog box.

To open the Properties dialog box

  1. Click the Change settings button in the top-right corner of the desired element. The Properties dialog box will open:

The Properties dialog box consists of the following areas:

  1. Statistics selection — allows you to select the statistics that will be visualized by the dashboard element. The toolbar contains:
    • Search box — start typing to filter the existing statistics.
    • Collapse — hides the statistics of this section.
    • Expand — shows the statistics of this section.
  2. Preview — displays the preview of the dashboard element in accordance with the current settings.
  3. Daily / Accumulate — toggles the type of data the statistics will show:
    • Accumulate (default state) — statistics will show aggregated data gathered from the beginning of simulation (The summarized transportation cost for a certain period of time).

      Note: Certain statistics show only Daily type of data.

    • Daily — statistics will show data per each day of simulation (e.g. the daily transportation cost).

    If Daily data is visualized as a Table or a Bar chart, the statistics will show the data for one day only, i.e., either the current value of this day (e.g. in case of Available inventory statistics ), or the value received at the end of the previous day.

  4. Additional settings — this table allows you to specify the details and filters for data displaying with its columns:

    Detail by — shows the name of the data type that the Contains column allows you to filter:

    • Object — sites, suppliers, customers and custom facilities of the supply chain.
    • Period — time periods of the current supply chain.
    • Product — types products delivered within the current supply chain.
    • Staff type — types of workers used within the current supply chain.
    • Type — facility types (Customer, DC, Factory, Supplier, custom facility types).
    • Vehicle type — vehicles defined within the current supply chain.
    • Zone — certain areas defined within the current supply chain.

    Contains — (double-click ALL) allows you to filter the elements (of the corresponding type) to analyze data of the selected items only.

    Show — specifies if statistics should show the data in total or per item.
