Editing Fixed or Stochastic Numerical Data

Some numerical values can be either fixed or stochastic (defined by probability distribution). The corresponding table cells provide the drop-down menu that allows you to set the desired value. You can also type the value manually.

To modify a numerical value

  1. Click the table cell to activate the edit box.

  2. Click the arrow next to the cell value to open the drop-down menu.
    • To set a fixed value, choose Value from the Type drop-down list and type the desired value in the Value field below.
    • To set a stochastic value, choose the desired probability distribution from the Type drop-down list (anyLogistix currently supports Uniform, Triangular, Exponential, Normal and Lognormal probability distributions). Set the distribution parameters in the fields below the list (the set of parameters differs for every probability distribution type).
  3. To save the changes, press Enter or click outside of the cell. To discard changes, press Esc.

To manually type the desired value

  1. Click the table cell to activate the edit box.
  2. Type the desired value:
    • To set a fixed value, type in the desired numerical value.
    • To set a stochastic value, type the value in the following format: Distribution Type(Parameter 1, Parameter 2, ...), for example Uniform(5.0, 6.0).
