Simulation Diagram Overview

Designing the application flow is an integral part of Caliber Visualize. Caliber Visualize allows you to add screens, logic, decisions, and redirects in a simulation diagram to create a visual model of an application. Simulations allow user interaction to occur with similar features to the proposed application.

Simulations are based upon a diagram that resembles a standard flowchart with labeled rectangles, diamonds, and connection lines. This flowchart is called a simulation diagram.

Simulation diagrams are created in the Scenario Designer, which you can access by selecting a scenario in the Project Explorer. Simulation diagrams contain actions, which function as configurable steps in the diagram, and connector lines, as described below:

  • Start Step – Always included as the first object in a diagram
  • Screen Action – Provides screen action and design capabilities
  • Decision Action – Allows you to create branching processes based on criteria that you set
  • Logic Action – Provides access to variables and configurable data input and output functionality
  • Redirect Action– Allows linking of the current simulation to another simulation to create simulations in sequence that model a complete application process
  • Rich Text Action
  • Connector lines – Allows linking of each diagram object to other diagrams objects to define application access and function order
