Create a new Experiment

Overview:

An Experiment is a collection of modifiers with a link to a Scenario An experiment can run just like a scenario can run. When you run an experiment it creates a Batch A Batch is an executable that spawns off (a sequence of) simulations. The Experiment uses modifiers to make changes to the scenario then run a simulation from each.


New View: Active Batches (analogous to Active Simulations)

1) create your scenario

2) in the editor you can create modifiers for models, decorators (a disease model), or graphs. To create a modifier for a disease, for example, find your disease in the STEM Project explorer. Select it, right click on your disease, and chose create a modifier as shown in figure 1.


figure 1a,b


This will launch a new dialog to help you create a modifier that can be added to an experiment (see figure 2). In the new modifier dialog, for example, under Transmission rate select "range" (sequence not yet enabled) and specify the range as shown in figure 2.


3) On top, select "Experiment Model" to launch the experiment wizard (Figure 2) drag the scenario into the experiment drag any number of modifiers into the experiment

click on the experiment, right click, and run it.
