Join Curt Frye for an in-depth discussion in this video Defining a scenario, part of Solving Optimization and Scheduling Problems in Excel.
- Changing single values in a Solver model…can provide a lot of information.…But it's very rare in actual analysis…that only one parameter changes at a time.…In this movie, I will show you…how to define scenarios,…which let you store sets of alternative values…you can apply to your worksheet.…My sample file is called DefineScenarios,…and it's an Excel workbook…that you can find in the Chapter07 folder…of the Exercise Files archive.…This worksheet contains the final answer…for the exercise on the Transportation Problem,…that was from chapter four.…
