In an index table each row corresponds to a given index of an output, and each column to a value of the output.
Columns can display either the value of an output for a specific time point, the maximum value or statistics such as mean value for a certain time point.
Creating an index table
From the results window (Recommended)
- Right-click the outputs that you want to include and select Index Table from the popup-menu.
From the tables window
- Right-click the tables window and select Create | Index Table from the popup-menu.
The controls beneath the table let you change the appearance of the table.
- Format - Select either scientific or decimal format
- Digits - Select the number of digits to show
- Highest - Select to highlight the highest value in each column.
- Lowest - Select to highlight the lowest value in each column.
- Condition - Select to enter a condition. The condition is on the form xstart < x < end and will be evaluated for each cell in the table. Cells who’s value fulfills the condition will be highlighted.
Editing an index table
To edit an index table either right-click the table in the tables window and select Edit, or double-click the table, or click the button in the title bar.
The table editor has two tabs:
This screen let you edit properties such as name, that are common to all tables. Please see editing table properties for more information.
This page lets you choose which indices to display data for, which outputs and which values of the outputs.
- Title – Enter a name for the first column. The default name is Index, but you are free to enter any text here.
- Indices – By default all relevant indices for the outputs shown in the table are included. By unselecting the box, a list appears that allows you to select exactly which indices to include.
To choose outputs for the table, select one of the table data columns. (You can add and remove columns using the Add column and Remove column buttons).
- Title – Enter a name for the column. If you do not enter a name, the name of the output (selected below) will be used.
- Output – A drop-down list with all the available outputs from the simulation.
||When calculating the minimum/maximum value, only values for the time points returned from the simulation are used. If few time points are included in the simulation result it is better to use a recorder block to capture the minimum/maximum value.
- Time point - Display the value of the output for a specific time point
- Minimum - Display the minimum value returned from the simulation.
- Maximum - Display the maximum value returned from the simulation.
- Time for minimum - Display the time point for when the minimum value is found
- Time for maximum - Display the time point for when the maximum value is found
For probabilistic simulations, you can choose the following options for which value is to be displayed:
- Mean – Select this button if you want the column to present the mean value of the output.
- Std dev - Select this button if you want the column to present the standard deviation of the output.
- Percentile - Select this button and enter a number between 0 and 100, if you want the column to present a percentile of the output.
- Format - Select either scientific or numeric format for the table.
- Digits - Enter the number of digits to show.
- Add column - Click to add a new column
- Remove column - Click to remove the selected column(s).
