Industry Leading Optimization CapabilitiesRisk Solver Platform provides the best-in-class tools you need to solve virtually any conventional optimization problem of any size, and unique tools to solve stochastic optimization problems of any type, while helping you along the way.
Solve any model typeSince it handles conventional optimization, simulation optimization, andstochastic optimization problems, you can build virtually any model you want, and let Risk Solver Platform take it from there.
Unlimited size modelsHandle problems with up to 8,000 decision variables (40 times larger than the Excel Solver) using built-in Solver engines, and virtually unlimited size problemswith optional plug-in Solver engines (PDF).
Wizards and Guided ModeOur Constraint Wizard helps you define constraints — for both conventional optimization and stochastic optimization problems. Guided Mode helps you better understand your model, refine it for better answers in less time, and find and correct any errors.
Helpful example modelsOver 60 example models show you how to create Excel Solver-compatible optimization models, Monte Carlo simulation models, decision tree models, simulation optimization models, and stochastic optimization models with chance constraints and recourse decisions.
Better solutionsFind better solutions to portfolio optimization problems, global optimization problems, and models using arbitrary Excel functions with Risk Solver Platform’s built-in LP/Quadratic, SOCP Barrier, Interval Global and Evolutionary Solvers.
The fastest optimizationsFind solutions between 2X and 200X faster than the Excel Solver, thanks to more advanced Solver engines, better optimization algorithms, and our super-advanced PSI Interpreter.
Industry Leading Monte Carlo Simulation and Risk AnalysisOver 20+ years of our own R&D and working directly with Microsoft, most recently implementing the new, more-accurate probability distribution functions built-in to Excel 2010 and Excel 2011, has enabled us to bring you a proven accurate Monte Carlo simulation tool which is much faster than competing alternatives.
Complete set of featuresOver 50 probability distributions and over 30 statistics are included, as well as the ability to fit distributions and automatically update them.
Seamless integrationAll functions work as native Excel functions, so if you know even a little about Excel you’ll be up and running in no time.
Insightful charts & reportsSee and share insights quickly with instant preview charts and a full range of fully customizable reports and charts.
Helpful example modelsOver 30 example models show you step by step how to create a basic simulation model, use Interactive Simulation, run multiple parameterized simulations, use distribution fitting and more.
Easy to useAn intuitive Ribbon and Task Pane, a unique step by step Distribution Wizard, and in-product Help set you up for success.
The fastest simulationsAt up to 100x faster than competing alternatives thanks to our super-fast, proven accurate PSI Interpreter, you’ll spend less time watching your simulation run, and more time analyzing results.
Combine Optimization and Simulation to Make Even Better DecisionsOptimization helps you make better choices when you have all the data, and simulation helps you understand the possible outcomes when you don’t. Risk Solver Platform enables you to combine these analytic methods, so you can make better choices for decisions you do control, taking into account the range of potential outcomes for factors you don’t control.Risk solver platform excel
One model does it allWith a single model you can optimize your decisions while taking uncertainty into account. The result is a more realistic model that helps you make better decisions.
Define recourse decisionsMany real-world situations involve both decisions that you must make “here and now”, and decisions you can make on a “wait and see” basis, after all or part of the uncertainty is resolved. Only Risk Solver Platform enables you to include bothtypes of decisions in your model — which often results in different and better decisions “here and now.”
Multiple ways to solveOnly Risk Solver Platform has built-in support for simulation optimization, stochastic programming, and robust optimization for models with uncertainty, offering multiple Solver engines for each of these methods. Products that support only simulation optimization cannot handle large-scale optimization models with uncertainty.
The speed you needRisk Solver Platform’s optimization and simulation speed advantage is even greaterwhen solving these more complex, and useful, models.
Single interfaceRisk Solver Platform has a single integrated interface for simulation, conventional and stochastic optimization, and decision trees, so you can access every feature and see your entire model at a glance.
Powerful Decision Tree capabilitiesDecision Trees help you visually lay out complex decisions to not only make choices clear, but also help you understand which choices you should make and the risk associated with each.
Easily build treesBuild single and multi-stage decision trees simply by filling in fields, and modify them right in Excel.
Add uncertaintyEasily add probability distributions and run simulations, to see the true range of potential outcomes for each decision alternative.
Full sensitivity analysisSee how your optimal decisions change as you vary the chances and payoffs across multiple outcomes.
Helpful example modelsOver a dozen example models show you everything from building a basic tree to adding uncertainty to advanced sensitivity analysis.
Designed to Make Optimization and Simulation Easier for You and Your TeamRisk Solver Platform is not just powerful, it’s also easy to use, with a host of features to help you get the insight and answers you need with the least amount of effort.
  • Automatic Mode allows Risk Solver Platform to diagnose your model type and attempt to transform it to make it easier to solve. It “makes you smart” by automatically choosing the most appropriate method (such as simulation optimization, stochastic programming or robust optimization) and the best Solver engine for your particular model.
  • Guided Mode is like having an expert at your side to help you understand your model, how to correct any errors found, how to interpret the solution found (for example whether it’s locally or globally optimal), and whether you’ll be able to scale up the model to larger size.
  • Interactive Mode for Simulation allows you to conduct real time what-if analysis, taking advantage of the speed of our Monte Carlo Simulation engine to do virtually instant simulation runs anytime a cell is changed in the worksheet. All output cells and charts are updated to give you immediate insight.
  • Comprehensive Reporting and Flexible Charting: Easily understand and share results and get insight into the key drivers of your model results and potential decision trade-offs you can make.
The Best Technology for the Best SolutionsAt the heart of Risk Solver Platform is the combination of our advanced Solver Engines and our proprietary PSI Interpreter — which automatically performs Monte Carlo simulation trials in parallel, algebraically analyzes your formulas, delivers model structure information crucial for advanced optimization algorithms, computes function gradient and curvature results with maximum speed and accuracy, and fully exploits multiple processor cores.
