This article describes the various options that the Tulip Analytics Builder provides to customize the display options used for an analysis.  

You may also wish to change the structure of the analysis, or change the data being displayed using the left-hand Context Pane.

In general, you can open the “Display” dropdown from the Toolbar:

Not all display options will be available for every configuration of templates and data. The Analytics Builder will automatically display only the display options appropriate for the current analysis. 

Listed below are the most common options that you will encounter:

Switch X Axis & Colors

On templates that have both an “X AXIS” and “COMPARE BY”, it is often convenient to switch the attributes used for “X AXIS” and COMPARE BY”.

You can do so by selecting the “Switch X Axis & Colors” option from the display dropdown. Selecting the option again will switch the analysis back to its original configuration.  

Below shows an example of selecting the option on an analysis:

Target Cycle Time

The Analytics Builder allows you to show target process and step cycle times.  You can define these target times in the App Builder.  Analyses with process cycle times or step cycle times will then display the target cycle time in red, and a “Target Cycle Time” entry will be added to the legend.  

If you do not want to display the target cycle times, you can hide them by selecting the “Hide Target Cycle Time” option from the display dropdown, and if you want to bring them back you can select the “Show Target Cycle Time” option.

Legend

The Analytics Builder allows you to turn the legend on or off.  You can toggle the status of the legend by selecting “Show Legend” or “Hide Legend” from the display dropdown.

View Types

Analytics provide many different chart types, such as bar charts or line types.  Each template has a different set of possible chart types associated with it.  

The “View Types” section under the display options dropdown will show you the chart types available for the analysis you have built.  Below is a summary of the different chart types, and when they will be available.  You can find more information about the different templates available here.
