Evaluation Component

From Ameise-en

The Evaluation Component shows trainers and trainees the range of possible evaluations in the form of a list. The specific information about a single evaluation criterion is shown either in text or in graphical form .

Evaluation Component

Trainers and trainees have the opportunity to get this information during or at the end of a simulation run. When this information is displayed after a completed simulation run, it is called final analysis; during a simulation run it is called interim analysis. If you choose the interim analysis it is possible that not all criteria are available for being displayed. So, in these cases, it is only possible to do a partial analysis of the simulation run.

You can find an Animation on the Demos page.
