Display the percentage of the progress of the analysis run。 If it can warn the user about the time required in advance, will be much better.
Why is run status not enough?
I believe accurate percentages are not possible because you cannot correctly predict the time needed to complete calculation; the 'trial and error' way to get convergence on the background can take short time for the first calculation but a longer time for the second in row. Moreover, you cannot predict during the calculation how many times the element order needs to be increased to get convergence on your measures.
I am so very happy this software does specify in RUN STATUS where it is in the calculation process, what steps are completed and what step is being calculated instead of only providing a 'nonsense' percentage. Based on a timespan needed for the first pass I can predict well enough what I expect the total calculation time to be.
