**QUESTION**

** **

How can I change a calculation parameter(s) for a imported calculated float signal in TestSuite without having to do this in the Calculations Editor window in 793 Station Manager?

** **

**ANSWER**

** **

The calculation parameter **Area** will be used in this tutorial but the concept is the same for any calculation parameter that may change in each test run.

- Go to the
**Resources**tab in TestSuite and click on**Import Resources**and select**Import the selected controller resources…**(Figure 1).

Figure 1 – **Import Resources** in TestSuite

- Expand
**Calculation Parameters**and choose the calculation parameter**Area**(Figure 2).

Figure 2 – Selecting a calculation parameter to import to TestSuite

- Click on OK so it becomes available under your
**Calculation Parameters**in your resource list TestSuite (Figure 3).

- Make the variable
**Area**in TestSuite a calculated variable; Area=Width *Thickness (Figure 4).

Figure 4 – Creating a calculated variable

- Add an
**Input Variables**activity near the beginning of your test procedure so that the operator is prompted to input values for**Width (W)**and**Thickness (B)**. (Figure 5).

6. Add a **Calculate Variables**: activity after the **Input Variables:** activity to calculate the variable **Area** (Figure 6).

7. Add a **Set Calculation Parameter:** activity after your **Input Variables:** activity. Assign the imported resource Calculation Parameter **Area **to equal the calculated variable called **Area** in TestSuite (Figure 7).
