Workload analysis (fixed time)
The workload analysis (available only in commercial ADONIS) supports you when you want to analyze the dynamic behaviour of your organisation. Waiting times for activities are not defined in advance but calculated by the simulation, based on a waiting queue model. The stochastic arrival times(starting frequency) of each process are described in the process calendar of the various processes. Additionally, the exact availability of each performer can be entered into a calendar – see Calendar attribute in the Performer object in a Working environment model.
Depending on the processes’ frequency of occurrence and the assignment of performers to objects of the class "Activity" or "Task" it is possible to identify workload profiles of organisational units and roles as well as to recognise bottlenecks and idle times. You can obtain both process and period related results.
The difference between the workload analysis (steady-state) and the workload analysis (fixed time period) can be characterised as follows:
