@RISK performs risk analysis using Monte Carlo simulation to show you many possible outcomes in your Microsoft Excel spreadsheet—and how likely they are to occur. This means you can judge which risks to take and which ones to avoid.More About @RISK
PrecisionTree performs decision analysis in Microsoft Excel using decision trees and influence diagrams. Decision trees let you visually map out complex decisions in a sequential, organized manner. This helps you identify all possible alternatives and choose the best option.More About PrecisionTree
TopRank performs automated “what if” sensitivity analysis on Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. Define any output or “bottom line” cell or cells, and TopRank will automatically find and vary all input cells which affect your output. This allows you to identify and rank all input factors which affect your bottom line.More About TopRank
StatTools performs forecasting and statistical analysis in Microsoft Excel. It replaces Excel’s built-in statistics functions with its own, more robust and accurate functions. StatTools covers the most common statistical analyses, and even allows you to build your own custom statistical procedures.More About StatTools
NeuralTools performs predictions in Microsoft Excel using sophisticated neural networks. NeuralTools imitates brain functions to “learn” patterns in your known data, using those patterns to make predictions from new, incomplete data. NeuralTools can automatically update predictions live when input data changes, saving time and enabling more robust analyses.More About NeuralTools
Evolver performs optimization in Microsoft Excel using genetic algorithms, linear programming, or the OptQuest solving methods. It finds the best solution to linear problems large and small, and gives the best overall global solution to nonlinear, complex problems where other solvers fail. Evolver constantly tries new, different solutions to arrive at the best answer possible.More About Evolver
RISKOptimizer uses genetic algorithms or OptQuest methods, along with Monte Carlo simulation, to solve optimization problems. Take any optimization problem and replace uncertain values with @RISK functions that represent ranges of possible values. RISKOptimizer tries different combinations of adjustable cells to achieve the goal you define, while running Monte Carlo simulations on each trial solution to account for inherent uncertainty. The result is the most robust, accurate solution possible.More About RISKOptimizer
