Plotting Results

The software generates a Results folder in the Simulation study tree after running a study successfully. The default plots in the Results folder depend on the study type and the options you set on the Default Options tab of the Options dialog box.

To plot results:

  • Do one or more of the following:

    Task Action
    To define additional plots: Right-click the Results folder in the Simulation study tree and select Define <plot type>.
    To display a plot: Double-click the plot icon in the Simulation study tree.
    To create a new results folder: Right-click the Results folder and select Create New Folder.

    You can rename results folders, and you can copy or move plots from one folder to another.

    To compare results of plots from within a study or across studies: Use the Compare Results tool.
