The purpose of this example is to import a user-defined table of results into the GUI, e.g. test results or results of previous simulations, and to enable an optimization to be conducted using these results.
Import User Results
We have the table of results stored in the file AnalysisResults.csv, in which header and data cells are separated by commas. Two header lines are required. The first header line contains the variable names. The second header line contains the variable types. The following lines contain the variable and response values for each design point. The types are defined as:
So, the first lines of AnalysisResults.csv should look like this:
LS-OPT provides a feature to convert the .csv format to the LS-OPT database format ready for analysis.
Now we can use the imported data to establish metamodels and to do analysis, e.g. optimization or sensitivity analysis, as usual.
