Managing simulation tests in Pega Customer Decision Hub

Suggest edit Updated on January 19, 2022

You can perform various maintenance tasks on the simulation tests that you created in Pega Customer Decision Hub to quickly and effectively manage simulations in your application.

  • Filtering simulation tests

    You can filter through simulation tests in Pega Customer Decision Hub to quickly find the simulation tests that you need, for example, to create a duplicate of an existing simulation test. You can filter simulation tests by input, application revision, or operator.

  • Viewing additional simulation test details

    You can view additional details for each completed simulation test. Additional details can help you correctly assess performance of target strategy on the component level as well as view record distribution across all decision data nodes in your application. You can view additional simulation test details only for simulation tests whose status is either In progress or Completed.

  • Configuring reports assigned to simulation test outputs

    You can review simulation tests by inspecting a variety of reports that can be assigned to a simulation output. Additionally, you can quickly respond to changes in business requirements or obtain additional data by viewing, adding, removing, or editing the reports. You can configure reports only for simulation whose status is Completed.

  • Duplicating simulation tests

    To create a simulation test, you can duplicate an existing simulation test and edit the copy. This solution saves time when you want to create multiple simulation tests that are only slightly different, for example, they use different Strategy rule instances to process customer data.

  • Comparing simulation tests

    You can compare outputs of two simulation tests in Pega Visual Business Director (VBD). For example, by comparing different strategies, you can determine the strategy that best fulfills your business requirements. By simulating different strategies you can also assess how modifications in your product offering can affect product sales.

  • Assigning custom reports to simulation tests

    You can create custom reports and assign them to simulation tests. By using this feature, you can adjust simulation reports to your business needs, for example, by configuring a report to show additional or more detailed data.

  • Scheduling simulation tests

    You can schedule a simulation to run at a specific time. This option is useful when you expect a third-party system to populate customer data at a certain time or you want to simulate on large amounts of customer data during off-peak hours to minimize memory consumption in your application.
