Loops

Repeat a workflow a known or unknown number of times

The Challenge

When describing problems using ‘each’ or ‘every’, the chances are high that loops can help. Testing each position for screw placement. Finding every viable design.

  • A lot of challenges involve a high number of iterations unknown in advance to reach a goal, however, running an optimization is too time-consuming
  • The same workflow sometimes needs to run consecutively over and over again

Our Approach

Repeat the same part of your workflow a number of times specified by a certain number or a certain condition being met. ‘Loop’ means a workflow, the end of which is connected to the beginning.

1

WORKFLOW

Define the part of the DNA to be iterated and the starting values

2a

NUMBER OF ITERATIONS

Define how many times the workflow is repeated

2b

CONDITION

Define the control structure such as a break statement for the termination of the loop

Your Value

Loops help you to avoid building the same workflow multiple times.

  • Run iterations a known number of times
  • They enable you to in the first place to build a workflow with an unknown number of iterations.
  • Reduce time and effort for you extensively while streamlining the DNA
