Advanced (Correlation)

The Correlation page allows the user to correlate the duration of the tasks in selected project.  Each task can be correlated to one or more tasks.  Correlations can be done in two ways; Manual and Group correlation.

In Manual Correlation

2.7.1 Add Correlation:

This functionality is used to add correlations to a selected task.

Steps:

  1. Simulations —>Advanced —>Correlation —> Manual Correlation
  2. Click on the empty cell under the Task ID or Task name column. (Figure 1)
  3. A pop up appears where the task for correlation is selected. (Figure 2)
  4. Another pop up appears where correlates to the task are selected. (Figure 3)
  5. Tick the check boxes corresponding to each task to be correlated with their correlation coefficients and click SAVE. (Figure 3)

Steps:

  1. Simulations —>Advanced —>Correlation —> Group Correlation
  2. Click ADD GROUP button and select field, criteria and its value, and correlation coefficient based on which the correlations are given. (Figure 5)
  3. Click SAVE (Figure 5)
  4. To edit a group, click Edit icon and then save the changes. (Figure 5)
  5. To delete a group, click Delete (Figure 5)

2.7.4 Create New Correlation Group:

This functionality is used to create a new correlation group with multiple filters.

Steps:

  1. Simulations —>Advanced —> Correlation —>Group Correlation
  2. Click CREATE NEW CORRELATION GROUP button to add correlation groups. (Figure 5)
  3. A pop up appears where the groups are created with a correlation group name and click SAVE (Figure 6)
  4. Click the ADD FILTER to add another filter in the correlation group. (Figure 6)

Steps:

  1. Simulations —>Advanced —>Correlation —> Group Correlation
  2. Click DELETE CORRELATION GROUPS (Figure 5)
  3. A pop up appears where the existing correlation groups are selected and click DELETE (Figure 8)
