Quickly and easily building multiple treatment alternatives to compare relative costs.
Build your layout - Create the original layout by drag-and-dropping the processes onto the drawing board and defining the connection streams.
Duplicate the layout – Go to 'Layout->Duplicate' to create an exact copy of the layout on a new tab. The unit processes on the duplicated tab with be 'sourced' back to the original layout so that any changes to the input parameters will be automatically propagated to the duplicate layout.
Switch out the alternative process - Delete and replace the desired unit process with it's alternative.
Cost and compare - Cost both layouts at the same time and compare the differences side-by-side.
