SIMUL8 Tip – Testing out Distributions
Once you start using them, distributions can become addictive! It’s always interesting to see how different distributions can affect the behavior of a simulation and relate to your process. In SIMUL8 there are many distributions already built in and it’s super quick to select one from the drop down list. You can even make your own by customizing a probability profile or setting up a time dependent distribution that will allow variation over a set time frame (great for systems where numbers fluctuate during the day).
New to distributions or want to see more detail? Download the simulation below to test out different types of distributions and see the actual values that they generate under different conditions. Try it now!
