Variables

A variable is a simulation element that acts only to contain some calculation or value to be used by other parts of the model. It can also act as a point of decision making, or to split a large calculation into smaller pieces. How they function is also the underlying structure which is extended by Flows and Stocks.

Inspector Value Table

This table shows the sketched and simulated data series for the variable. The sketched cells can be edited by double clicking or selecting and then typing. Cells can also be copied in and out much like usual spreadsheet software. Entire columns can be selected by clicking on their names, with additional columns selectable using shift-click.
