Event Timeline

Another type of Scenario Report that is very helpful when doing detective work on your scenario is the Event Timeline. This report records the event time line of the simulation, in terms of the changes to the model and the value of the objective function. This report can help to verify the sequence of simulation controls that led to the development of the solution. This report is simply a table of activities carried out within a particular scenario. Time and date of the event and details of each event are listed. Examples of events could be loading particular files, and changing target values or block values.

If you would like to make a note of an action you perform while you are in the Main Patchworks Window, you can add it to the Event Timeline by selecting "Add a note to log" from the Tools menu.
