An output source is an association between InfoWater Pro and the output (.out) file created from a simulation run. InfoWater Pro refers to model runs as output sources, whether they be *active*.Standard or ScenarioName.Standard, every model run is affiliated to an external output file by its "output source" name.
From the icons at the top of the Run Manager, the user has full control over the associations between an output source in InfoWater and its external output file.
For Example; If a user has created and modeled four custom scenarios, the output for each scenario will be made available for report and graphing purposes under the Output Report Manager (under the All Output Sources box). If the user then wanted to add (load) another model run performed by someone else (perhaps multiple people working on the same project file), then by clicking on the Load Output Source icon, the user can assign an external output file to a user-defined (internal) output source. Once this is done, the newly imported output source can now be compared with other previously run "output source" models (via graphs and reports).
