Assume we want to compare two different LED options, and how output changes between different Lens Y and Lens Z coordinates. This is like studying the sensitivity of the system performance as a function of LED position and the LED itself.
To accomplish this with PSA, we can use PSA in Configuration mode. This requires each variable state to be evaluated as a separate configuration. PSA scans through each configuration, and conducts an evaluation and records the results. This can be a bit tedious to set up manually, especially for runs with many variable trial states (in our case, we have 18 total states to evaluate). Fortunately, you can use PSA to shorten the process by generating a list of the numeric variable values that can then be copied into the Configuration Manager.
In PSA, it is simple to add the Y and Z position as variables and generate a parameter scan list.
