Low number of iterations

Post by G&G » Fri Feb 09, 2024 10:50 pm

When running a simulation, regardless of the schedule we are running it only runs about 400 iterations. Can we force the software to run more iterations.

The number of iterations that will be run is set in the Project Options > Calculations tab. Based on the number of iterations you are seeing, convergence is enabled. Convergence occurs when the simulation results equal the mean and standard deviation values that are defined.
To run a higher number of iterations, disable Convergence by clearing the Stop simulations when converged check box and set the number of iterations you require in the Maximum number text box.
