Setting Analysis Mode  

This procedure describes how to set the analysis mode. The analysis mode determines whether simulation analysis occurs in a particular simulation or jog (that is, whether analysis is on or off).  If analysis is on, this command and Analysis Configuration also determine whether clashes or transgressions of distance parameters result in the affected parts becoming highlighted or in the simulation stopping. By default, activating Analysis Mode On/Off also activates Analysis Display On/Off .
Create several analysis objects (e.g., collision, band width, or distance) to run during a simulation. Be sure you have the Tools > Options > DELMIA Infrastructure > Analysis set as desired; changes that you make to the tab once you have opened the Analysis Status dialog box are not reflected in the dialog box until you launch a new session.


  1. Click Analysis Configuration .

  2. Use the arrow buttons to move the analysis objects from the Available to the Selected pane.

  3. Click the Analysis Level heading so that all of the analysis objects no longer have the Off setting.

  4. Click Analysis Mode On/Off .

    This command functions as toggle:

    • When the icon is not highlighted, the analysis status is set to Off (default mode).  It deactivates all the analysis checks.
    • When the icon is highlighted, the analysis mode is set to On.  When on, all the analysis and the device and robot checks selected in Selecting the Analysis Configuration are performed.  If, however, the analysis mode within the dialog box generated by Analysis Configuration is set to Off, that overrides setting the Analysis Mode  to On.
      If you have the Display Analysis Status Window check box selected in Tools > Options > DELMIA Infrastructure > Analysis, Analysis Display On/Off appears highlighted. 
    The Analysis Status dialog box appears.
  5. Click the Customize button.

    The Customize Analysis Status dialog box appears.
    The box consists of a list of possible analysis objects. 
  6. Clear the check boxes associated with the analysis objects whose status you do not want to follow, then click OK.

    The Analysis Status dialog box appears in its filtered form.
  7. Click Customize again, and select the Analysis Level check box.

    The Analysis Status dialog box appears in its filtered form.
  8. Click the Status icon next to one of the analysis objects.

    You cannot perform this action while you are running a simulation.
      The Status icon has a toggle function:
    • Green signifies that the analysis is On (i.e., in Highlight, Verbose, or Interrupt mode)
    • Red signifies that the analysis is Off.
    • Orange is possible only for the Interference, Distance and/or Measure objects. Orange signifies that simulation is enabled to perform the corresponding analysis type, but no analysis object of that type is computed. This light changes to green while the simulation is running if an analysis object of the corresponding type is computed.
  9. Run the simulation or jog to see the analysis results.

    Closing the Analysis Status dialog box while a simulation is running sets the Analysis Mode to Off.
With Analysis Mode On, if an error condition is detected, the user is notified.  If a collision check is performed, the colliding objects are highlighted.  If a device or robot check is performed, the affected parts are highlighted, as defined in Tools > Options > DELMIA Infrastructure > Device Analysis or Robot Analysis.  Also, if you selected the Verbose option for any over-limit mode, a message indicating the problem is displayed.
  To have the Analysis Status dialog box appear whenever the Analysis Mode is set to On, select the Display Analysis Status Window check box on Tools > Options > DELMIA Infrastructure > Analysis.  On the same tab, you can also select analysis types that you do not want to appear in the dialog box.  If an analysis type is marked Inactive, it does not appear.
