SIMPROCESS Dashboards are collections of dynamic graphs that can be displayed locally or remotely by a Dashboard Server. The graphs contained by Dashboards can be of the same type or of differing types.

Dashboards are defined independent of SIMPROCESS models. Thus, a Dashboard can be used with multiple models, or multiple models may use a single Dashboard. To use a Dashboard with a model, the Dashboard must be assigned to a model. The Assign process links the Dashboard to the model, indicates the location of the Dashboard Server for display (host or IP address and port), and sets the values that will be displayed on the graphs defined for that Dashboard.

During a simulation, Dashboards can only be displayed by using a Dashboard Server. A copy of the Dashboard file must be located with the Dashboard Server.
