Monte Carlo Risk Simulation Package
The Lumenaut Monte Carlo
Simulation package provides a range
of tools that enable the user to easily
and quickly build interactive monte
carlo risk simulation models natively
If you have an existing
Excel model or building one from scratch,
it is simple to place a Monte Carlo
Simulation on top of this. There are
no special formulas required, just point
and click on the individual cells you
wish to mark in the analysis and set
Monte Carlo Analysis is
increasingly being used in all fields
and industries where a better appreciation
of the actual likelihood of obtaining
certain results such as profitability
(Business Analysis, Project Risk Assessment),
Tolerances (Manufacturing and Six Sigma),
failures (engineering), for example,
Example of a simple financial
basic Model, Bob wishes to examine the
likely profitability of his new product
idea. So he first builds his financial
predictive model in Excel. However,
all he gets out of this model is a single
answer what he needs is an ideal of
the possible range of profits he can
make and their probabilities.
Bob decides to use Monte Carlo analysis
as this will enable him to ascribe probability
distributions to his input variables
Using the Risk Input Form,
below, he chooses suitable probability
distribution for his input parameters.
These cells are marked in green by Lumenaut.
following statistical distributions
- Extreme Value
- Negative Binomial
the Output Form, opposite,
he selects the output cells in the model,
in this case profitability, shown in
orange above by Lumenaut.
It is possible to give each individual
output cell an easy to identify name.
Finally the model can be run via the
Run Simulation Form
, it is
possible to set the number of iterations
for the simulation from 1,000 to millions.
The speed of the simulation can be
