To be able to upload many experiments with different values and run them, it is possible to create a script using the command prompt commands to do all the steps automated if preferred.

Instead of a script, it is valuable to use Heeds as the orchestrator. It can run experiments on the cloud with a big variable set or also create study’s to optimize variables in the system
