What are Smart Stats?

Smart Stats replace the output report in ProcessModel. The following video provides an overview of the capabilities of Smart Stats.

Standard Reports

Seven standard reports automatically expose information to identify system problems. The reports include:

  • Entities
  • Activities
  • Single-capacity activity states
  • Multi-capacity activity states
  • Resource
  • Resource states
  • Variables
The standard report tabs expose opportunities in seven different areas.

Change the look and feel

Customize the look of all reports using the Theme icon from the ribbon. Fonts, colors, and accents all change to popular and tested themes.

Change the look and feel of every object in the Smart Stats program.
Modify Smart Stats program colors using the style menu on the far right.

Remove reports

Use the Tabs Icon to hide any irrelevant report categories. For example, if your model doesn’t include resources, then showing resource reports would be confusing, so hide these.

Remove irrelevant reports using the Tabs icon.
The above image shows the remaining tabs after removing some standard reports.

Rearrange the tabs by dragging a tab into a new position. Show the information in the order necessary for your presentation.

Remove columns from a report

Use the Column Icon to hide any statistics column not crucial to your goal. For example, if you decided not to include the cost or BVA in the model build, showing these columns provides no useful information.

For this model, the highlighted columns don’t add value.
The columns filter allows irrelevant information to be hidden from the report.
Report with relevant columns remaining.

Sort information by the clicking on the header

Names appear on the output report in the order of how you placed them on the layout. Alphabetize the names by clicking on the header. All columns sort using this same method. This technique quickly identifies critical information in many reports.

Additional stats

After running replications, use the Stats icon in the ribbon to enable additional information — Such as the Min and Max…confidence intervals, etc.

Additional statistic options are available after running replications.

Custom Reports

Custom reports provide a method to create a comparative view of specific statistics. To create a custom report, click on the new report button.

All elements used to create custom reports work the same.

  • Select the object to use in the report from the Menu Bar.
  • Click on the layout to locate the upper left corner of the stat or graph location.
  • Make selections from the dialog to define the object.


These statistics are called Smarts Stats. “Smart Stats” continue to work whether running

  • a single runs
  • multiple scenarios
  • replications
  • scenarios with “replications.”
  • or even numerous model files
