Creating resource consumption analysis reports¶
This feature is available in the Enterprise Edition.
A resource consumption analysis allows for the calculating of time consumed in a process or a task. It can help you find complex and time consuming tasks and plot out the resource consumption of process participants.
To create a resource consumption analysis for one or multiple diagrams, follow these steps:
- Select the diagram in the Explorer.
- Click Reporting in the upper drop-down menu.
- Click Resource consumption analysis (XLS).
- The Quantitative analysis dialog opens. At first, you can adjust the diagram selection:
- Click Next.
- You can now choose the analysis options:
Resource consumption analysis is already selected. To also include linked subprocesses in the calculation, select Include subprocesses in calculation.
- You can now add more information about the processes:
Click Start Calculation. If the diagram contains any structural or logical mistakes, the system will inform you about that. If errors occur, the program will ask you to go back to check the diagram in the Editor. Click Open diagram to do so and check the steps described at the beginning of this chapter:
If there are no errors, an XLS file will be generated. Open it with a program such as Microsoft Excel. Click the link to open or save the file.
This file contains the analysis. The values are based on functions, so changing one value may change the values in other fields accordingly.
If multiple diagrams were included in the report, one new tab will be created for each diagram in the Excel file. An additional tab will be created as a front page that shows the data for the processes.
