Click the Results View tab to see the results of the study you run.

Clicking a scenario updates the model in the graphics window with the variables of that scenario. The following table explains the significance of the colors of scenarios.

Scenario Color Meaning Example

(available only for Optimization Design Study)

Indicates the best or optimal scenario.
Red Indicates violation of one or more constraints by the scenario.
Background color Indicates current scenario and all scenarios that are not optimal or faulty.
Gray text with the same background color used for the tree view Indicates failure to rebuild the scenario.

You can plot simulation results in addition to viewing the values of variables, constraints, and goals for the different scenarios. On the left frame of a Design Study tab, under Results and Graphs , select a sensor to plot the associated simulation result.
