What is Monte Carlo Simulation?

Understand risk and get insight into your models

Modeling the Real World

Spreadsheets are designed around fixed numbers. But numbers in the real world — project costs, time to completion, return on investment — are never fixed. Monte Carlo simulation is designed to build this variability into your spreadsheet models, so you can better understand what might happen.

Adding Another Dimension

Monte Carlo simulation adds another dimension — depth — to your spreadsheets. Instead of a single calculation, in a simulation you have hundreds or thousands of calculations. It's this extra dimension that allows you to understand and analyze the risks and uncertainties in your models.

Questions and Answers

Monte Carlo simulation won't give you a final, fixed answer — that's not what it's for. But you can ask questions like what is the probability of loss? — and find answers which help evaluate your risk.

  • Imagine a spreadsheet that has a stock portfolio. There's a rate of return. Usually, you get this from the average historical return.

    What's the total return going to be in 10 years? Just multiply the return 10 times.

  • But we know the real world doesn't work that way. Some years are up, some years are down. If the first year is down, this can have a dramatic impact on the overall results.

    In a Monte Carlo simulation, instead of using a single value for the return, you use a random distribution — something that better reflects the real world.

  • Next, you run the model hundreds or thousands of times (that's the simulation part). Each time it runs, a different value will get substituted for the return.

    All those results are stored for later analysis.

  • When the simulation is done, you can see the probability of various results.

    What's the most likely outcome? What is the probability of a loss?

    What's the risk?

  • The data can also be used to generate tables and charts — many with just a few clicks.

    The RiskAMP Add-in includes 40 random distributions, spreadsheet functions for statistical analysis, and automatic generation of charts and graphs.

The RiskAMP Add-In

The RiskAMP Add-in has everything you need to build complex Financial, Cost Planning, or Project Management spreadsheets, using a library of random probability and statistical analysis functions.

With the RiskAMP Add-in, you can add Risk Analysis to your spreadsheet models quickly, easily, and for a fraction of the price of competing packages.

Deep Integration with Excel

The RiskAMP Add-in includes an Excel Toolbar that makes it easy to use and easy to get started. We provide an easy user interface for entering the basic distributions, and one-click "QuickView" histograms and correlation charts.

Library of Functions

The RiskAMP Add-in includes 40 random distributions and 18 statistical analysis functions. Use our functions with the standard Excel library functions to design complex stochastic models. You can even script simulations with VBA!

Charts and Graphs

Create complex tables and charts with just a few clicks from the RiskAMP toolbar. The Histogram and Chart wizard creates new worksheets or tables in your existing sheets. Every time you run a simulation, charts will update with the latest data.

We believe the RiskAMP Monte Carlo Add-In for Excel offers the best combination of features and low price — the best value in Monte Carlo simulation software.
But don’t take our word for it — we offer an unconditional 30-day money back guarantee.
