Learn More About Each Product in the Suite
Each component of the DecisionTools Suite performs powerful analyses.
When you combine products, you can achieve more complete results than any single program can provide.

@RISK performs risk analysis using Monte Carlo simulation to show you many possible outcomes in your Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Project spreadsheet—and how likely they are to occur. This means you can judge which risks to take and which ones to avoid.
PrecisionTree performs decision analysis in Microsoft Excel using decision trees and influence diagrams. Decision trees let you visually map out complex decisions in a sequential, organized manner. This helps you identify all possible alternatives and choose the best option.
TopRank performs automated “what if” sensitivity analysis on Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. Define any output or “bottom line” cell or cells, and TopRank will automatically find and vary all input cells which affect your output. This allows you to identify and rank all input factors which affect your bottom line.
StatTools performs forecasting and statistical analysis in Microsoft Excel. It replaces Excel’s built-in statistics functions with its own, more robust and accurate functions. StatTools covers the most common statistical analyses, and even allows you to build your own custom statistical procedures.
NeuralTools performs predictions in Microsoft Excel using sophisticated neural networks. NeuralTools imitates brain functions to “learn” patterns in your known data, using those patterns to make predictions from new, incomplete data. NeuralTools can automatically update predictions live when input data changes, saving time and enabling more robust analyses.
Evolver performs optimization in Microsoft Excel using genetic algorithms, linear programming, or the OptQuest solving methods. It finds the best solution to linear problems large and small, and gives the best overall global solution to nonlinear, complex problems where other solvers fail. Evolver constantly tries new, different solutions to arrive at the best answer possible.
RISKOptimizer uses genetic algorithms or OptQuest methods, along with Monte Carlo simulation, to solve optimization problems. Take any optimization problem and replace uncertain values with @RISK functions that represent ranges of possible values. RISKOptimizer tries different combinations of adjustable cells to achieve the goal you define, while running Monte Carlo simulations on each trial solution to account for inherent uncertainty. The result is the most robust, accurate solution possible.
BigPicture is a mind mapping and chart generation add-in for Microscoft Excel. It allows you to create mind maps to organize thoughts and ideas, or create dynamic maps from any type of spreadsheet data.
