Running an Optimization

After you set up the optimization, you are ready to run it. This involves the following steps:

 To run an optimization experiment

  1. In the Projects view, right-click (Mac OS: Ctrl+click) your optimization experiment and choose  Run from the context menu
  2. Alternatively, choose Model > Run from the main menu, or click the arrow to the right of the  Run toolbar button and choose the experiment you want to run from the drop-down list.
  3. This opens the model window, displaying experiment's UI. If you have created default UI for the experiment, start the optimization by clicking the  Run button in the control panel at the bottom of the model window. The optimization process will be started.

When you have finished finding the optimal solution, you may copy it to simulation experiment of your model. Then you will be able to simulate this model with optimal parameters.

 To copy the found optimal parameters to simulation experiment

  1. When you have finished finding the optimal solution, copy the values of parameters corresponding to the best solution, to the Clipboard, by clicking the copy button in the model window. 
  2. Paste the optimal parameter values into the simulation experiment by opening the General property page of this simulation experiment and clicking the Paste from Clipboard button at the bottom.
