Due to the complex nature of procedures within their environments, setting the duration Allowable Operational Time Windows (AOTW), Time of Procedures (ToP), or simple Events can be simplified using time distributions. After a time distribution file is imported and applied using the import analyzer, on an open diagram, select an Action entity to apply the proper time distribution to.
In the example above, a ToP Action entity was selected with an invalid duration set to 0 seconds. When an entity is selected, focus your attention on the toolbar and locate the button labeled Time Dist. Upon clicking it, the Time Distributions popup will appear.
With the Time Distributions popup open, you may be able to find a dropdown allowing you to select a time distribution applicable to the selected entity. If no distributions appear, this can be a result of either not having an applicable time distribution in the time distribution file uploaded, your time distribution not being loaded, or simply never having uploaded one in the first place.
When a time distribution has been selected, a description of which action the time distribution will be applied to, its parameters as well as the duration to be set. If the settings are to your satisfaction, you can confirm them by clicking the Confirm button, otherwise, you may select another applicable time distribution or cancel altogether.
After clicking confirm, you can see the changes being made immediately in the attributes column of the selected entity with the duration attribute set to what was defined in the time distribution.
