New feature - Dynamic Range

See in this video how Dynamic Ranges allow end users to interact with a model.

Feature Pack 3 - Dynamic Ranges

Imagine you have built a model and brought it to a team meeting with your manager group. Of course they will be impressed with your model, but typically say the following;

"We are planning to introduce a new business unit in our sales channel handling the sales in the northern region. Can your model accommodate this?"

Previously you would have to withdraw yourself to a corner of the room. You would start with adding the element to the range ans its subranges. Then large portions of your model would be undefined, and you would need to find all array variables where this range is in use and correct with new input values if needed. This could take some time, depending on the size and complexity of the model. When all the initial values are well defined, you would be able to resume and say;

"The new business unit is now added, what are the figures you would like to input?"

See a demonstration video.

With Dynamic Ranges you can now simply, working from within the user interface:

  1. Add the name of that business unit to your range using an Action Button
  2. The new unit will receive default values from the model, ready for the group to edit.
  3. You will not loose any of the input values for the old business units given previously in the meeting.

All this will be done within a few minutes!

So if you suspect that a range in your model might be extended in the future, why not make it a Dynamic Range! The model will be more flexible in use, as well as available for end users to tweak and play with!

Dynamic Ranges work with Powersim Studio 8 Enterprise and Executive.
