Set a probability value for a breakpoint on the duration of an activity.

Each breakpoint in a probability distribution is defined by two numbers, as follows:

  • x-value: time point in the activity duration where the slope of the distribution changes
  • y-value: probability of the time point. This probability is a relative number compared to the y-values of all other breakpoints. Consequently, any number can be set, since its real probability will be calculated relative to the other y-values of other breakpoints.

The number of breakpoints is set by calling the P2Simulator:set_number_advanced_distributions function. Using advanced distributions is relevant using the P2Simulator:run_simulation function with the advanced parameter set to 1.
