How to create a simulation ergonomic report

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hello there,

I got 2 problems with Process Simulate:

  1. I want to make a simulation report of 2 humans working. I know how to create a static report but I can't find the option to make a simulation report (couldn't find anything in the help file either).
    I already checked the simulation boxes in the 'Analysis tools' but it doesn't create a simulation report while running the simulation. I already tried choosing humans while running a simulation and hitting the 'Create ergonomic report' button and I tried choosing the sequence in the operations tree and hitting the button. How can I create the simulation report?
    The program only let's me create MTM & Generic reports

  2. I got a simulation with 2 humans and I defined tasks for them to do simultaneously. Now I got 2 tasks for human 1 I want to reorder them to make them happen while human 2 is doing something else. When I hit the 'Unlink' button in the sequence editor nothing's happening. Is it possible for me to reorder the tasks or do I have to set the simulation up again from scratch?

    Thanks alot

    Ben

    PS: If you need pictures/videos please tell me from what and I'll prepare some for you.

Hi Ben,

 

1) I think you create the human simulation using the "Task Simulation Builder"?

In that case, please start by activating the desired report type:

In this case, let's activate the Ergonomics Metrics report for Jill:

Last invoke:

ScreenHunter_206 Nov. 01 05.51.jpg

 

 

And the report is generated:

2) By default new tasks are created last in the sequence. You can change this behavior by specifying the "Occur Before/After Task condtition". By selecting the TSB simulation root itself as the "Occur After Task" The new task will be created first in the simulation:

You can do this at task creation time, and also after the creation, as seen in the video below:

(view in My Videos)

 

Also note that during Task creation, you can automatically set the Occur Before/After task by using the TSB Task context menu, "Add TSB Task Before/After":

Hi Pelle,

 

thank you for your tutorial.

 

I have another question. Could we create a ergonomic report for operation?

 

Best regards

Hi Elisha,

 

That is - you would like to create an ergonomic report for a "non TSB" human operaiton?

Select the human for which you would like to create a report.

Invoke -> Analysis Tools:

Select the report types/modes you would like to create

E,g, below I activated OWAS -> Simulation report:

Execute the simulation

At simulation end you should get the "Create Report" dialog:

Hi Pelle, 

 

I tried what you said. But it didn't work.

Maybe I created a report for compound operation, which the TSB and Non-TSB operations mixed together?

 

Best regards

Hi again Elisha,

 

Yes - you are correct.

If you execute a compound operation which hosts both Legacy PS operations and TSB operations.

-> The generation of simulation reports is not supported.

 

I'll create an ER for this, will see how/if it can be adressed.

 

Best regards,

Pelle
