After creating a scenario and adjusting any other Scenario Details as desired, click Run Scenario to generate scenario results. Only one scenario can be run at a time to ensure optimal system performance and eliminate user impact in other parts of the application.
Immediately upon starting to run a scenario, the Run Status updates to Running and the Last Run Start time displays the current date and time. Existing scenario results, if any, clear at the beginning of the run. While a scenario is running, the progress screen displays.
While a scenario is running, you can leave the screen to work in other parts of the system while the scenario runs. When the scenario completes, a confirmation displays, click Close, and the Results tab displays. If you are somewhere else in the system when the scenario completes, the screen automatically closes. The scenario run status updates to Completed and scenario results are immediately available for review.
While a scenario is running, scenarios, plan years, or protocol associations cannot be edited or deleted. While a scenario runs you can edit assets included in the scenario or edit protocols used by the scenario. At the beginning of the scenario run, the system gathers all necessary asset and protocol data. The Last Run Start field records the date and time a scenario run started. Any asset or protocol edits made after this time are not be reflected in the scenario.
If the Scenario encounters a critical error while running, the scenario status updates to Stopped with Critical Errors. Any results generated up to the point of the critical error clear. Last Run Start time keeps the date and time the scenario last started. Open and review the Error Log to review a detailed error message and resolve any issues as needed. Run the scenario again to successfully complete the scenario.
While a scenario runs, any user that tries to View the scenario sees the Run Progress dialog box. Any user can cancel a running scenario. All scenario results will be cleared on cancel.
Scenario Run Statuses
There are five Run Statuses. The Run Status field is blank if the scenario has never run.
The scenario is currently running. View the scenario to check running progress. While a scenario is running, an intermediate status of Saving will be used when saving specific pieces of data to the scenario.
The scenario has been run and completed successfully. The scenario, plan year and activity list results are ready to view. The Last Run Start field will indicate the time and date when the scenario was run, giving an indicator as to how up-to-date the results are.
A running scenario was canceled by a user. Any scenario results which had been generated are cleared.
Stopped with Critical Errors
A running scenario encountered a critical error and the scenario run was stopped by the system. Scenario results will be blank or incomplete. A detailed error message is written to the Error Log.
Scenario Edited, Rerun Required
The scenario has been edited since it was last successfully run. The Scenario Details and Scenario Results are mismatched; the scenario results are no longer representative of the current settings in Scenario Details. Complete any additional scenario edits if necessary, then click Run Scenario to generate updated results.
