Now begin the serial process for each AP of selecting the AP, selecting its algorithm, and configuring the devices for that AP. Select an AP in the list to be configured next; then select its algorithm (``.PORT'' file). Once this is completed, you can pop up the operand-equality overlay as before to configure devices for each AP (by pressing the ``OP-EQ CONFIG'' button). Note that any files of operand-equality configuration data should be separate for separate APs.
To select the beam settings for the simulation, you can follow the exact same procedure used when simulating a single AP. The only difference is that the beam configuration will be the same for all APs, so whatever you set while configuring one AP will be the same when you configure another AP. It follows then that only one file of beam configuration data needs to be used for the entire simulation. You can go back and reconfigure the beam settings for the simulation at any time before execution.
Once an AP and its algorithm have been selected, and its devices have been configured, you can go back to the AP/algorithm selection overlay to select another AP and begin this configuration process all over again. If you wish to go back and change the configuration of a previously conigfured AP, go back to the AP/algorithm selection overlay and reselect the AP. However, be aware that reselecting a subordinate AP and its algorithm in this mode will always reset the operand-equality configuration for that AP. This is also true if you wish to repeat a simulation in this mode with minor adjustments to the device settings. Where the resimulation of a single AP will retain the operand-equality configuration from the previous simulation, this is not true of this mode. If you anticipate either case, consider saving the operand-equality configurations to a file.
Once all APs have been configured in this manner, you can execute the simulation of the entire MPS system by pressing the ``RUN'' button.
