Shows many possible outcomes and how likely they are so you can judge which risks to take. Allows for best decision under uncertainty

Excellent software for financial risk analysis
Kommentare: It has been really great to understand stochastic processes in finance and analyse investments, mergers and even stocks
The infinite variety of data representation though excel functions that emulate geometric brownian motion to analyse moving finances
The UI is pretty bad since there is not a standalone software to write the code and debug
Using Monte Carlo Simulation
Monte Carlo simulation is a very useful tool that allows the user to incorporate variability to what otherwise would be a simple spreadsheet model that uses average values. It is possible that if you use average values a project you are analysing will be profitable according to your analysis. When you incorporate variability while the expected profit is positive, can find that there is a high probability of the profit being really a loss.
@risk is a software you can use to create this type of models. It is basically an Excel add-in that will allow you to transform your Excel model into a much more versatile one. When you run your model you obtain not only a point estimate but can look the spread of the estimates. Can also identify which input variables are critical and you can also do some sensitivity analysis to look into the potential effect of one or more of the inputs changing (for example, what could happen if interest rates change).
The software is easy to use and it has an excellent manual as well as excellent online support. The company also organises on a regular basis very interesting conferences where case studies are presented by companies and these conferences are an opportunity to meet like minded people.
I have been using the software mostly for teaching but past students are using them at their workplace with great success.
Two things: documentation and the easiness to do networking which is very important for anybody who is interested on working in the area.
Would like to see more practical examples of BIG projects but I suppose many of them are property of the company that developed them.

Thank you, Alicia, for taking the time to write this glowing review of our software! We are so appreciative of customers, like yourself, that spread the word about @RISK and Monte Carlo simulation. Your description of Monte Carlo simulation is perfect and helps to demystify it for those that aren't familiar with why Monte Carlo simulation can often times be a better option. We have over 80,000 students a year using our software, some of which are probably your students! These students will typically enter the workforce being able to make better decisions using @RISK and Monte Carlo simulation. Thank you, again, for your kind words and for being one of our valued users!
Just okay - R or Python better
The software integrates very easily with excel, and for an advanced user of excel, it is really easy to get the hang of. @Risk functions make it easy to calculate distributions.
@Risk is very slow when making complicated models or dealing with large datasets. R or Python would be able to process much quicker.
Feature rich software for Monte Carlo Simulation
Works within Excel as an add-in Easy to setup and use Distribution library is large, also like the distribution fitting option
There is no viewer available. User must have the @Risk license to interact with the results. You can always take screen shots but you cant interact iwth the data.
Powerful Modeling Tool
Kommentare: @RISK is an extremely functional tool for data modeling and has given me a great user experience since I began using it.
The ease and efficiency @RISK allows you to model real business problems makes it a great tool to have. It provides a lot of insight with its large amount of available tools to sort your collected data (tornado graphs, histograms, etc.) and can sort it further by correlation coefficients, total change, etc. It is also very easy to pick up. If you already have some fluency with Excel and basic knowledge of statistics you will be able to understand how to work @RISK very fast.
There is not a lot of critical things I have to say about @RISK as its functionality is as it should be. Although if I did have to choose I would say that it would be nice to have a couple more graphical tools to visualize the data.
Great Operations Tool!
There are several video tutorials available for questions you might have and this is a great tool for simulating several possible outcomes quickly. Seems to be a lot of support available for troubleshooting and learning.
I liked least that I was limited by my own lack of knowledge of the potential and offerings of this product, but that may improve the more it is used.
I used Palisade @risk to teach a graduate course named engineering management and planning
Kommentare: Palisade @risk is very useful in teaching Critical Path and other concepts in project development and management.
Palisade @risk is very powerful and easy to use. Common adjustment of simulation setting can be achieved in the front ribon without the need to go to more options.
I wish Palisade @risk provided some more indepth instructional videos, focusing on each of the specific Risk functions. The current video is great but hide some important details and making it difficult to replicate for a novice user.
In my opinion, @Risk is the best software for analysing scenarios under risk approach.
Kommentare: It is an easy way for doing risk analysis
I do most like is its functionality, because it works together Microsoft Excel, and this feature allow one to study different scenarios under risk.
I do least like is that I cannot generate figures in postscript, namely, files with extension ps or eps, which are very necessaries for doing reports in my profession.
All what we were looking for for risk control
Very flexible can be used with Excel spreadsheet and Project Great tool to quantitative factors of risk
I just have one complain, the only time I had a problem with the tool, I made a ticked but didn't get a response as quick as I needed.
