Plotters
Find and select the file StatFtEx.sfp. It should be in the same folder (\Examples\Tips\Model- ing Tips) as the StatFit Example model.
In Stat::Fit, choose Fit > Auto::Fit or click the Auto::Fit button in the toolbar. In the Auto::Fit window, click OK to use the default settings.
After Stat::Fit does some computation, a window appears displaying a list of parameterized distributions that have been ranked according to goodness of fit.
In Stat::Fit, choose File > Export > Export Fit or click the Export button in the Stat::Fit tool- bar.
Select “Extend” under the application window (it should be the default), then choose the desired distribution (there should only be one).
Click OK and return to ExtendSim. (You may exit Stat::Fit if you wish.)
The Random Number block’s dialog should reflect the Triangular distribution and parameters
Stat::Fit selected.
Additional Stat::Fit documentation is available in Stat::Fit’s Help menu and in the SF Manual V2.pdf file located within the ExtendSim9\Documentation folder.
Plotters
Most of the ExtendSim plotters have many features in common. The Reservoir model in the Tutorial module shows some basics of how to use plotters. This section describes the Extend- Sim plotters in more detail and shows how to make plots appear the way you want. All plotters are located in the Plotter library.
Depending on their type, plotters allow you to plot from 1 to 6 traces (plotted lines) at a time. If you build your own plotter using ExtendSim’s ModL language, you can plot up to 100 traces on a single plotter. Your choice of plotter type depends on the type of model you build (contin- uous, discrete event, or discrete rate) and how you want information plotted (such as batch runs, histogram, and so on). Plotter types are described later in this chapter.
You can have more than one plotter in a model and you can place plotters at any location in the model. Usually plotters open automatically when the simulation is run. If the plotter is set to not open (as discussed in “Plotter dialogs” on page 686), you can open it by double-clicking its icon.
