Please check the “Times simulation designer (overview)” page first.
Before running a time simulation, you need to setup required elements for a workload simulation. These data are used to compute how much time is required, by each resource, to execute activities.
Please refer to the “Workload simulation designer (overview)” page to perform a workload simulation.
Once done, you can provide a few elements to run the times simulation:
- The acquisition duration of resources: This is the transportation delay to deliver the resource
- Execution order: When multiple activities can start at the same time, you can provide a sort order to priorize activities execution
- Fixed start date and time: You need to provide an initial start date and time for the simulation. This is required only for top processes and process categories.
In this form, only the yellow background fields must be filled.
