Performance Measure Current Content

I want to see how process changes impact inventory levels of a particular step.

Is there a simple way to include "Current Content" of a queue?

I only have options for min / max / average. The best I can come up with is to include a value for input / output using triggers and initial inventory and do the math myself...


Thanks!

You can use the Sampler on the Reference field, and hover over your queue, just like you did in the picture in your question. Then choose the first option, which will only set the reference field. Then you can set the Value field to the following:

reference.as(Object).stats.content.value

The Value field is just a code field, so you can put any code you want.

Hello @Dustin B,

If you select the Queue and open the statistics tab in the properties panel, you can pin the chart to the dashboard. You can also open a dashboard and place a content chart and select the queue as the object.

I did try that, but it won't then let me include it as a performance parameter once I'd pinned it to the dashboard.

It would be nice to have the box and whisker graph with the other performance parameters for a quick check - if that is at all possible.
