Validating Scenario Data

Validation is performed automatically once you launch an experiment, but you can also run it manually any time. It checks the current supply chain scenario for data inconsistency and shows the found issues in the Validation view of ALX layout.

To validate a scenario

  1. Click the  Validate button in the experiments section. In case there are issues to fix, the Validation section will open, containing two tabs:
  2. Navigate to the Error tab and click the description of the error in the Source column of the table. You will be taken to the ALX table containing the error with the required row selected.
  3. Adjust the row's data in accordance with the error's description.
  4. Click Close to close the Validation section.
  5. Run Validation once again to check the data consistency.
