This is the one I have used

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.

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
