Explore the Effects of Variation on Responses

Simulation enables you to discover the distribution of model outputs as a function of the random variation in the model inputs and noise. The Simulator in the profilers enables you to define random inputs, run simulations, and produce output tables of simulated values.

In the Prediction Profiler, the Simulator is integrated into the graphical layout. Factor specifications are displayed below each factor’s profile. A simulation histogram is shown for each response.
