Parameter Propagation

You can associate a parameter of an agent type with a parameter of its embedded object. In this case if you change an agent type parameter during the model execution, the associated object parameter depending on it also changes. This holds generally for all parameter dependencies down the agent tree from the modification point.

Propagate values of parameters down the objects hierarchy when:

 You can associate only parameters of the same type.

 To associate a parameter of an agent type with a parameter of its embedded object

  1. Open the diagram of the agent type in the graphical editor.
  2. Select the embedded object and go to the Properties view.
  3. Find the edit box, defining the actual value of the parameter you want to associate with a parameter of the agent type.
  4. Type there the name of the parameter of the agent type, which values you want to propagate.
