Join Curt Frye for an in-depth discussion in this video Performing sensitivity analysis, part of Solving Optimization and Scheduling Problems in Excel.
- Changing the parameters of a Solver model…helps you gain insights into the…characteristics of your solution,…but whether you make progress…can come down to luck.…If you increase the cost of an input…by 10% and the optimal solution changes,…then you know that change has an effect.…But you don't know if increasing the cost…by 9% would have a similar effect…unless you try it.…In this movie, I will show you how to perform…a sensitivity analysis in Solver.…The sensitivity report tells you…how much you can increase or decrease each cost…without affecting the solution.…
My sample file is the Sensitivity workbook…and you can find it in the Chapter 7 folder…of the Exercise Files collection.…I have two copies of the solution…from the Transportation Problem in Chapter 4…and I have changed the Fill color,…or actually removed it from the Original Solution,…so that it is visibly distinguishable…from the solution that we're going to be modifying.…And that's over here on the left side…underneath the New Solution label.…This workbook already has a Solver model,…
