Used by Columbia University
for modeling Energy Policies

Students at Columbia University’s School of International & Public Affairs (SIPA) learn to deal with risk on a global level, and in Professor Roy Nersesian’s
Quantitative Methods in Energy and Policy Analysis course they gain hands-on experience in the development and interpretation of quantitative models for project evaluation and policy assessment. The students develop cash flow and market models using Palisade’s @RISK.

Dear Amy,

I have a rather large model with thousands of inputs that spans multiple worksheets. I love @RISK’s unlimited capacity, but is there any way I can speed up simulation time?

Dear P.M.,

As you know, @RISK can tackle any size model you give it. There are a number of ways to reduce simulation run-time. In your Simulation Settings dialog, there are a variety of options that affect simulation speed. Make sure the Update Display option is not checked, so the computations are not made on-screen during the simulation. Similarly, do not check the Update Real Time for your @RISK Results Window option, so graphs and tables don’t update during the simulation...
