Compare table

The compare table is used to compare two simulation results over time.

Creating a time table

From the results window (Recommended)

  • Select the two outputs you wish to compare (use CTRL to select more than one output). Right-click the outputs and select Compare Table from the popup-menu.

From the tables window

  • Right-click the tables window and select Create | Compare from the popup-menu.

Table controls

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

Highlight

  • 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 a compare table

To edit a compare table either right-click the table in the tables window and select Edit, or double-click the table, or click the Edit button in the title bar.

The table editor has two tabs:

Properties

This screen let you edit properties such as name, that are common to all tables. Please see editing table properties for more information.

Data

Here is where you specify which outputs your table will display. The first column will contain a series of time points and each consecutive column will display a simulation output.

Rows

  • Title – Enter a name for the first column. The default name is Time, but you are free to enter any text here.
  • Output - Click the button to select the first output.
  • Compare with - Click the button to select the second output.
  • Option - Select how the outputs are compared:
    • A/B - Display the ratio between the two outputs.
    • A-B - Display the difference between the two outputs.
    • A-B/abs(A) - Display the absolute (normalized) difference between the two outputs.
  • Mean – Only available for probabilistic simulations. Select this button if you want to compare the mean values of the outputs.
  • Std dev - Only available for probabilistic simulations. Select this button if you want to compare the standard deviation of the two outputs.
  • Percentile - Only available for probabilistic simulations. Select this button and enter a number between 0 and 100, to compare a percentile of the two outputs.

Column

To change a column header, select the column in the table and then enter a new name in the Title field.

Table

  • 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).
