Batch Manager

The Batch Manager lets you set up multiple analysis tasks to run immediately or later.

To open the Batch Manager:

  • In the Plastics CommandManager, click Batch Manager .


  Study Folder Select the plastics study folder to create the analysis task.
  Maximum number of CPUs Select the maximum number of CPUs for an analysis task,
  Simulation Type Select the simulation type (Fill, Pack, Warp, and Cool) for an analysis task.
  Add Task Adds an analysis task to the scheduled tasks list for batch processing.
  Scheduled Tasks Provides information about the schedules tasks
Move Up Moves the selected analysis task up the batch list.
Move Down Moves the selected analysis task down the batch list.
Delete Task Deletes the selected analysis task from the batch list.
Change Simulation Type Changes the simulation type for the selected analysis task.
  Start Time Specifies the starting time for the batch analysis computation.
  Maximum Simultaneous Tasks Determines the number of analyses executed simultaneously.

The software uses all available CPU core processors during the multithreaded portions of the analysis, regardless of the Maximum Simultaneous Tasks you specify. The CPU core processors are equally split between the analyses that are simultaneously executed.

The running batch computation must complete without interruptions before you can add a new analysis task to the batch computation.
