Solve tough problems and do complex scenario analysis with Decision Optimizer

Decision Optimizer (OptQuest) is an optimization tool that runs as an add-in to Crystal Ball that enhances simulation models by automatically searching for and finding optimal solutions.

At the basic level, OptQuest selects a value for each decision variable, enters those values into your spreadsheet, runs a Monte Carlo simulation on the spreadsheet, records the results, and repeats the process.

With OptQuest, you can determine the best combination of decision variables that yields the results you are seeking!



Discover The Power Of Decision Optimizer

Easily add optimization to your Crystal Ball simulation model

Optimize any forecast or output in your model

  • Build simple or complexe models
  • Example models covers the Portfolio Allocation Model, Productio Optimization, Queuing, Supply Chain Optimization

  • Define requirements for feasible solutions
  • Minimize or maximize any forecast

Use Discreet, Continuous or Custom Variables to test your decisions

Create natural language logical constraints

  • Define or modify upper and lower bounds for each decision varable
  • Ability to set continuous or discreet simulations
  • Create multiple constraints
  • Use of simple operators
