For all graphs a set of scenarios can be defined. A scenario is a typical path taken to complete the proces, or an invalid path you should not be able to take. Scenarios can be created either by creating a simulation or by using the swimlane editor.

The expense report graph have a set of scenarios, sometimes also referred to as representative simulations.

Scenarios for an expense report

Three types of scenarios exists:

  • Required – this path must be possible to complete
  • Optional – this path might be possible to do
  • Forbidden – this path can not be completed

Re-running scenarios

Scenarios can be re-run at any time by clicking the re-run simulation button. Valid scenarios will be shown with a green marker whereas invalid will be shown with a red marker.

Re-run scenarios

Each scenario can be shown as a swimlane by selecting Edit under each scenario.

Swimlane editor

The swimlane module enabled the user to validate and change scenarios rather than re-running simulations.

Opening a swimlane is shown below:

Clicking Edit and then Validate trace the scenario will be validated.
