Project workflow

The project workflow of Promethee is presented on the following loop, which describes the typical sequence of a Promethee project.
The initial engineering step is to define the objective, with:
  • a code suitable to simulate the studied process,
  • engineering parameters useful to reach the objective (and available in the code),
  • possibly an algorithm support, like optimization to manage calculation cases with the code.

Once this first specification is done, the project sequence may start:
  1. build source data files for simulation (possibly with an external dedicated tool, like a CAD software),
  2. import and parameterize these files to include choosen “input” variables,
  3. choose interest output values provided by the code,
  4. [automated] run remote and parallel calulations with this code,
  5. [automated] parse all resulting files and extract output variables values,
  6. [optionnal] iterate the run step if the algorithm ask for,
  7. analyse results to conclude on the initial engineering objective or iterate project sequence if unsatisfied.

GUI workflow

This workflow is instantiated in the following Graphical User Interface on the left side, while the right side is a contextual panel, dedicated to user interaction during the project steps.
  • the workflow manager:
    , itself holding the three steps of the Promethee projects:
    • the “Data sets” zone, for input dataset importation, input/output modeling, engineering issue parameterization:
    • the “Calculations” zone, for running calculations:
    • the “Results” zone, for analyses and storage of Promethee projects:
  • the contextual panel:
    , providing dedicated panels for all previous situations.

Project management

Promethee allows to create, delete, load, save or restart a project depending on the project workflow position:
  • in “Data sets” zone:
    • create a new project using icon, select the main input file (or multiple to create several projects)
      alternatively just drag and drop an input file in the “Data sets” zone
    • delete the selected project using icon
    • save the selected project in a ”.pmp” directory using icon
    • load a previously saved project using icon and selecting the ”.pmp” directory
    • launch the selected project calculations using icon
  • in “Calculations” zone:
    • delete the selected project using icon
    • restart (put in “Data sets” zone) the selected project using icon
    • pause the selected project using icon
    • start the selected project using icon
      project is automatically started if number of running projects is less than configuration limit (generally 3 simultaneous running projects are authorized)
    • give higher/lower queue priority using or icon
  • in “Results” zone:
    • delete the selected project using icon
    • save the selected project in a ”.pmp” directory using icon
    • load a previously saved project using icon and selecting the ”.pmp” directory
    • restart (put in “Data sets” zone) the selected project using icon
