How do I show Variable Values during Simulation?

On-Screen Variables

Show dynamic variables while the simulation runs.

Suggested Technique

  1. Create a variable used to track the statistic.
  2. From the Variable dialog, select the Scoreboard check box.

Example: A new statistic is created to show the number completions per day. The output graphs will adequately display the statistics but the dynamic view of the statistic on the screen will aid in developing understanding.

TO DO: Define a variable to collect the desired statistic and place a check in the check box labeled Scoreboard. Place the desired logic in the action tab to manipulate the variable and collect the statistic needed. Run the model and the view the variable on the scoreboard.
