Participants will be primarily using @Risk (version 5.0 or newer) or alternatively CrystalBall (v 7.0 or newer) with Microsoft Excel to solve the exercises. However, participants can also choose to use another Monte Carlo package of their choice. It is essential that all participants are reasonably proficient in Excel. Trial versions of @Risk can be found from Palisade's website herehere and trials of CrystalBall can be downloaded from Oracle's websiteOracle's website. As the trial licenses last 15 days, participants should install it only a few days before the course. In addition to @Risk/CB and MS Excel, participants are required to bring laptops with Microsoft Word and PowerPoint installed.
