Monte Carlo Simulation

Hello,

Is there any free good Excel Add-in for using Monte Carlo Simulations?  it would be good if it would have the capability of calculating the latin hypercube simulation too.

anyone has experiance on this?  thanks for your help.

This is the one I have used

http://www3.wabash.edu/econometrics/EconometricsBook/Basic%20Tools/ExcelAddIns/MCSim.htm


This add-in, MCSim.xla, enables Monte Carlo simulation from any Excel sheet. The logic is quite simple: you select a cell that has or depends upon a random number (using either Excel's RAND or our RANDOM function) and the add-in recalculates the sheet for as many repetitions as you request. It outputs the results to a new sheet with summary statistics and a histogram. You may Monte Carlo more than one cell and you have several other options.

do you know any better one than this. if I run the iteration of 3000 it is too slow.

This is one I have used and it is fast, but it costs.

Have a look at the demo video: http://www.solver.com/build-your-first-optimization-model
