Using Decision Actions

Decision actions are points in a described process where the process branches, with the branch direction depending on the action that the user takes.

Decision actions are configurable using comparison operators, which are mathematical statements used to compare values and product a true or false result. Functions include a statement you can use to match two items (equals), determine that two items are different (not equals), that one item is larger than another (greater than), or that an item is smaller than another (less than).

Comparison operators can be used in sequence to show more than true and false results by using an if, then, else statement to show the results of a branching decision.

In Caliber Visualize, this concept appears in the simulation diagram as a rounded diamond, which is created by clicking the New decision action button on the Simulation Designer toolbar.
