Introduction to Financial Modeling with @RISK: A Training CD

Wayne Winston, author of the best-selling Financial Models Using Simulation and Optimization and Decision Making Under Uncertainty with RISKOptimizer, has developed an interactive instructional CD! In this CD, he outlines how to use @RISK and Excel to solve a wide range of real-world business problems. Professor of Decision Sciences at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business, Winston has a straightforward, practical style that appeals to both students and professionals. He walks you through step by step how to solve each problem. As he discusses the concept at hand, he performs the keystrokes and constructs the model right in front of you. The material is broken up into ten units, and each unit is further divided into logical sections. This lets you customise your learning by repeating just those sections you need to see again, or by skipping those not of interest. And because it runs off the CD, you can take it anywhere. It's like having your own personal expert teaching you where you want, when you want, and at the pace you want!

A users manual is also included in PDF format. This guide includes a statistical review and the step-by-step examples from the CD. Example Excel files are also included so you can experiment with them and adapt them to your own needs.

Topics covered on the CD include:
Optimal ordering techniques
Modeling uncertain demand
Modeling timing and number
    of competitors
Estimating revenue and profit
    given uncertain demand, costs,
    and competition
