Results Collection Period

The results collection period is how long the simulation should be run before automatically stopping while collecting results. The simulation will not start to collect results until the warm-up-period is finished.

Set the results collection period from the Home tab.

The default value is based on the simulation running for 5 days, 8 hours per day as this is the default settings for the clock. The results collection period is recorded in minutes or whatever the current global time unit setting is.

So the default value is 2400 minutes, but you will notice that the default results collection period is actually set at 2399.49995. This is so that at the end of the run the clock shows Friday 5pm rather than Monday 9am as it would if you entered 2400 for the results collection period.
