Default Warmup time

I recognized that the Chart Tool is not taking care of the warmuptime. You can see all the results of the Warmup in the gantt charts and I wonder now if the percentages are also including the warmup which would be incorrect!

It would be nice if you could enter the time range in another dimension like hours or days. So I don´t have to use my calculater each time I put a time range.....
kind regards Nico.

The chart tool needs some improvement for sure. But there is also a work around for now.

One way to do your task is instead of using the Chart Tool, using the MS Access or other tools to analyze database directly. In the Flexsim Chart, once you defined Data Entry for a chart, you can click on View SQL to see the SQL command used behind that chart. You could use the same SQL command as a start point in MS Access and modify it to get the right data, then copied it into Excel to do the chart. Or you can do a programming using whatever your favorite language if you want it to be more automated.
