Monte Carlo Simulations


Dear Anaplanners,


I would like to know if Monte Carlo Simulations are possible on the Anaplan platform ? I would appreciate to any kind of help pertaining to this topic. Thanks a lot.

    There are some challenges you must overcome to build Monte Carlo simulations in Anaplan.


    Anaplan does not include a pseudo-random number generator.  You either have to implement your own using Anaplan formulas and functions, or import a file of data generated by an external psuedo-random number generator.  From that point, you want to generate values at random from a probability distribution.  You will need to implement the probability distributions using Anaplan formulas and functions.
