Goal

How do you obtain from the results of a simulation run in BPA for statistics for Max Dynamic Wait Time and Max Queue Length?

For Max Dynamic Wait Time, as a workaround you can export function details to Excel and perform a manual calculation. Is there a way to build in these statistics to be automatically calculated by the simulator?

Specific to Max Dynamic Wait Time - The simulation "Statistics - Functions (det.)" tab only retains the last ~30 process instances, so you only get the max of the last ~30 runs if you do more than ~30 runs the rest are not shown. The earlier ones are available if the data is exported - per the mentioned workaround above. So is there a setting to retain all process instances in the Statistics detail tabs?

Specific to Max Queue Length - This is the maximum number of items which were in each of the queues at any time during the simulation, note that this is not the same as throughput time.
