Webcast: Monte Carlo Simulation: Don't Gamble Away Your Project Success

Maurice Klaus, performance management expert — MoreSteam

Understanding and quantifying the risk related to being able to assemble a product, meet a customer specification, or realize a target profit level is a necessary step of an effective design process. Monte Carlo simulation can be of great assistance in these types of situations.

Monte Carlo simulation is a powerful tool that can be used to analyze the behavior of a product, process, or plan that has a deterministic relationship between its inputs and outputs. With each of the inputs modeled as a specific probability distribution and sampled randomly, an aggregate output is created that can then be evaluated for performance capability and risk.

Benefit from the experience of Maurice Klaus, a performance management expert, as he describes how Monte Carlo analysis can be used in in design and process improvement projects.

In this session, the following key points will be covered:
