It would be great to import the data from PI into the process simulation to enable motivation for process enhancements or optimisation
In the process editor, you can define an execution time in minutes for a task. Another time interval does not seem possible. In the simulation, these times are then displayed in units of hours per task. Again, no other time interval is possible. Optionally, we can also set the times in seconds in the editor and then decide in the simulation whether the display and calculation should be in seconds, minutes or hours
Companies often have a large number of processes which are interrelated. These dependencies can not be visualized and analyzed in Signavio. In addition to the existing process simulation, a representation of all processes with connections to each other, based on predecessor / successor relationships would be helpful. It could be shown how central or peripheral a process is in relation to the network and thus also ...more »

It would be useful to feed simulation parameters from external sources like a database or CSV.
We have been discussing that on slack in the cs-presales-internal channel and there are a couple of code-snippets there that might be used at a starting point.
It is not possible to access a dictionary term for a text notation in the process landscape. If documents are changed, the documents on a text note are not taken into account. Documents must be created twice.

Currently to try different paths in the simulation of a process you have to restart all.
Is is annoying for process that are not just straight simple..
I think we should be able to Resume simulation at a certain point back in time by clicking an element in the chain.
Or having a slider showing simulation progress and being able to move the cursor backward to go back in the simulation.
While running simulation, the collapsed sub processes are also run. As it will avoid the hassle of separately calculating the process cost.
In collaboration models the interaction between the various pools on message flows and message events can not be simulated. This means that every process resp. Pool running separately, the interdependencies are not considered. To start a process, although it has not yet been initiated by another (so it is but modeled). This should of course be taken into account for the graphic animation.
In complex processes there are more than a few decision points and thus paths that one has to consider. Or in other words, in a complex process one will have many tokens, taking different paths from start to end of process. There is an algorythmus for calculating process costs, time etc. while one uses the functionality of simulation. For example „Step-by-Step“ simulation follows a certain pattern, certain path in a ...more »
Liese in the glossary the respective departments on "values define" number of (total) Creating resources and their average internal cost per unit of time, the simulation category "resources" could take this information and use of the processing for the simulation. The process side workplan then pulls the resource units from the process.
Box jumps to zero once the Kurser touches the field. The input in decimal. Depending on the field unit will automatically convert to the correct unit. Ex .: Input = 1.5 -> field = 1:30
The fields of the four categories (cost, duration, frequency, resources) should be configurable for each simulation. That is respective units (Euro / person days, weeks / days / hours / minutes / seconds, year / month / week, RTD / MAK) should be individually adjusted for each simulation scenario. There would also be smart fields: - All roads execution probabilities together give 100% automatically. - Including gateways ...more »
