<!--<h1><u><font color="#336699">DSE Dashboard Help</font></u></h1>-->
The <b>DSE Dashboard</b> is your starting point for any Design Space Exploration activity.
<br><br>
<img src="pictures/Dashboard.png", width = "100%">
<br><br>
The main view is divided into three columns:
<ul>
<li>in the <b>Constraints</b> section (left), two buttons are provided: they allow you to access either constraints or objectives modeling;</li>
<li>in the <b>Synthesis</b> section (centre), you can select the kind of synthesis you are interested in performing (either deployment or schedule; platform synthesis is currently not enabled);</li>
<li>in the <b>Visualization</b> section (right), a button allows you to reach the Visualization view, in which several modalities for result visualization are provided.</li>
</ul>
Below you can find two further buttons for:
<ul>
<li>selecting an existing AF3 Project;</li>
<li>importing an external model.</li>
</ul>
In the standard perspective, on the left side, two navigators are present. These are not part of the Dashboard and will stay visible also when switching to a different view.
In the top left corner you can find the <b>Process Navigator</b>, which will take you to any step in a DSE Process and provides a shortcut to most options available in the Dashboard. It consists of four buttons:
<ul>
<li>the Home Button leads to the DSE Dashboard;</li>
<li>the Constraints Button leads either to constraint or to objective Modeling</li>
<li>the Synthesis Button leads to deployment or schedule synthesis</li>
<li>the Visualization Button allows you to visualize synthesis results.</li>
</ul>
Below the Process navigator, you can find the <b>DSE Navigator</b> which displays in a tree-format the history of your design space exploration, i.e.:
<ul>
<li>model imports;</li>
<li>target definitions, i.e. definition of constraints and objectives;</li>
<li>rule set definitions;</li>
<li>synthesis performed;</li>
<li>selection of artefacts returned as solution by a synthesis step.</li>
</ul>

<h3>Starting point: Importing an AF3 model or existing DSE project</h3>
<ul>
</ul>
<p>Each DSE project starts with an import of an AF3 model: Therefore, press the button "Select
AF3 Project" at the bottom of the Dashboard (Note: Importing external models is currently
disabled). This opens a dialog where all projects present in the modelling view are listed
(see figure below).</p>
<p><img src="pictures/Import_File_project.png" alt="First page of the import dialog." title="Import-First_page"></p>
<p>From this dialog, a new DSE project can be created from an AF3 model by selecting a top-level
element from the list of projects. Alternatively, existing DSE projects can be imported. AF3
models containing a DSE project are foldable and have a black colored text whereas those
without a DSE project have a gray text color.</p>
<p>When importing a AF3 project, the wizard traverses through the model types it found in the
project. It allows to select the model instance to be imported in the DSE project (see below
for the import page for Task Architectures). The relevant elements for the DSE project are
highlighted by a yellow background. </p>
