The Simulation Summary Results Form

Form Overview

This form is displayed when you click on the "Simulation Results" tab of the Portfolios form. This tab is only visible if the portfolio was prioritized using Simulation-Prioritization.

This form displays all the statistical results of a simulation-prioritization in a list form. This form displays the Project Name and Median Rank, Mean Rank, Highest Rank, Lowest Rank, Cumulative Percentage Rank, Median SMART Score, Mean SMART Score, and SMART Score Standard Deviation. If the prioritization has been performed using a weight bias, the number of attributes used and the average bias achieved in the prioritization is displayed.

The Cumulative Percentage Rank value represents the normalized area under the individual project cumulative percentage rank curve (see the Cumulative Percentage Chart form for a detailed description of these values). The top of the form displays the prioritization model, portfolio, and Number of Tests used in the prioritization.

Column Active Headers:

Clicking on the column header will automatically sort the projects by that column.
