2. Scenarios and controls

Contains the currently open scenarios and controls, allowing you to work with the scenarios:

If the ribbon can't fit in all the open scenarios:

  • Hover your mouse over the ribbon and scroll the mouse wheel to turn the carousel and navigate to the required scenario.
  • The Closed list becomes enabled, allowing you to explore all the scenarios the ribbon contains.

Scenario tiles show experiment status if it has been launched.

To reorder scenarios in the ribbon simply click and drag the required scenario to the desired position.

  • Closed — opens a list with the closed scenarios.
  • Add — opens a menu, allowing you to:
    • Create new — opens the Create new scenario dialog box, allowing you to define parameters and create new scenario.
    • Import — opens the Import dialog box, allowing you to import a supply chain scenario from the MS Excel file or a database.

In the multi-user version scenario tiles have tooltips that show the owner/creator of the scenario

3. Input data and experiments

Contains experiments and their results, controls for validating data and switching between the supply chain and experiment modes.

This section can be minimized to offer more map space.


    • MRP Inventory Policy — the tile shows the name of the scenario you are working with. When clicked the tile switches the layout to the supply chain mode (the default mode) that contains the input tables in the dashboard below the map.
    • Check — checks scenario for data inconsistency.
  • EXPERIMENTS — contains experiments of this scenario type, and their outputs. The number next to the experiment name defines the number of available outputs (results).

To minimize/expand this section.

  1. Click on the right border of this section.
    The section will be minimized. You will now see only icons of the actions.

  2. Click the control again to return to the default view.
4. Map

The map displays the elements of the supply chain scenario and their connections.

5. Dashboard

The content of the dashboard depends on the mode:

  • In the data supply chain mode (the default mode) the dashboard contains the list of tables and the table editor.
  • In the experiment mode the statistics dashboard contains either a dashboard menu (in case of simulation based experiments), or a list of results (in case of Network optimization experiment).
Dashboard controls

— expands the dashboard, places it over the map.

— hides the dashboard, providing more space for the map.
