Roadmap Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 20103 Using Data Tables and Excel Scenarios for What-If Analysis Chapter 8

Chapter Objectives Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 2010: Chapter4

Conducting Break-Even and Sensitivity Analyses Break-even analysis – Type of what-if analysis that concentrates on an activity at or around the point at which a product breaks even Sensitivity analysis – Type of what-if analysis that attempts to examine how sensitive the results of an analysis are to changes in the assumptions Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 20105 Level 1 home

Break-Even Point Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 20106 Level 1 home

Sensitivity Analysis Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 20107 Level 1 home

Analyzing What-If Results with Data Tables Data table – Range of cells containing values and formulas – Change the values, the results change – Can compare results of many calculations; useful for break-even and sensitivity analyses Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 20108 Level 1 home

Types of Data Tables One-variable data tablesTwo-variable data tables One input cell and many result cells Set of input values must be arranged perpendicular to the set of output formulas, with no value or formula located at the intersection of the set of input values and output formulas Two input cells, only one result cell; determines how two values affect a single result The two sets of input values must be set up perpendicular to each other, and the output formula must be in the cell at the intersection of the two sets of input values Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201011 Level 1 home

Preparing a Worksheet for Data Tables Data table depends on values and formulas used in a worksheet and must appear on the same worksheet that contains this data Worksheet must: – Use input cells that contain values you want to modify in a what-if analysis – Use result cells containing formulas that calculate the values you want to analyze Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201012 Level 1 home

Input and Result Cells Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201013 Level 1 home

Formulas Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201014 Level 1 home

Varying One Value in a What-If Analysis 1.Set up the structure for the data table – Create a set of input values you want to use in a what-if analysis – Indicate the results you want to see in the data table 2.Instruct Excel about how the data tables structure relates to the input section of the worksheet Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201015 Level 1 home

Setting Up a One-Variable Data Tables Structure Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201016 Level 1 home

Completing a One-Variable Data Table Select the range that includes the input and results cells Specify whether input cells are arranged in column or row (Table dialog box) Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201017 Level 1 home

Interpreting One-Variable Data Tables Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201018 Level 1 home

Varying Two Values in a What-If Analysis 1.Set up the structure for the data table 2.Indicate how the data tables structure relates to the input section of the worksheet Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201019 Level 1 home

Setting Up a Two-Variable Data Tables Structure Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201020 Level 1 home

Setting Up a Two-Variable Data Tables Structure Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201021 Level 1 home

Completing a Two-Variable Data Table Select the range that will constitute the completed data Specify how data table is structured and which cells in the worksheets input section relate to the tables values (Data Table dialog box) Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201022 Level 1 home

Completing a Two-Variable Data Table Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201023 Level 1 home

Interpreting Two-Variable Data Tables Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201024 Level 1 home

Comparing the Results of Complex Analyses Excel Scenario Manager – Perform what-if analysis with more than two input cells – Define and save sets of values as scenarios; view and change them to produce and compare different results Requirements for running a scenario – Well-structured input and output sections – Output depends on input through use of formulas – Changing cells and results cells must be on same worksheet; cannot span worksheets Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201025 Level 2 home

Planning Scenarios Prepare the inputs Prepare the outputs Set up a scenario Prepare a worksheet for scenarios Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201028 Level 2 home

Preparing the Inputs Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201029 Level 2 home

Preparing the Outputs Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201030 Level 2 home SUMPRODUCT function can be used to sum a series of products (the results of a multiplication task)

Setting up a Scenario Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201031 Level 2 home

Preparing a Worksheet for Scenarios Determine the changing cells in the worksheet Name the input and result cells you want to use Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201032 Level 2 home

Adding Scenarios to a Worksheet Use Add Scenario dialog box in Scenario Manager – Each scenario must have a name Indicate scenarios changing cells in Changing cells box Enter specific assumptions for changing cells in the Scenario Values dialog box Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201033 Level 2 home

Scenario Manager Dialog Box Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201034 Level 2 home

Working with Scenarios Viewing and Analyzing Scenarios – Click the scenario name in the Scenario Manager dialog box – Click the Show button – Compare different scenarios Editing and Deleting Scenarios – Use the Scenario Manager dialog box Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201035 Level 2 home

Generating Scenario Reports Use Scenario Manager to create two types of scenario reports – Scenario summary – Scenario PivotTable Before printing a report, indicate which result cells are of interest Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201036 Level 2 home

Creating Scenario Summaries Shows values for all changing cells and for all indicated result cells for all scenarios in the worksheet Tabular format makes it easy to compare results Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201037 Level 2 home

Creating Scenario PivotTable Reports Summarize result cells from a scenario Can change the view of the data to see more or fewer details Can edit and format the report Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201038 Level 2 home

Understanding Simulation in Business Simulated results – Based on realistic, but not actual, data Excel functions for comparing simulated results – RAND – VLOOKUP – Can also create a two-variable data table that contains probable data and generates simulated results Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201041 Level 3 home

Preparing a Worksheet for a Simulation Using a Data Table Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201042 Level 3 home

Developing a Simulation with a Two-Variable Data Table Structuring a two-variable data table for a simulation – One set of input values must be a sequence of numbers that represent the number of iterations of the simulation Completing a two-variable data table for a simulation – Highlight entire table range and tell Excel to which input cells the sets of input values relate – Iteration values are directed to any empty cell in the worksheet Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201043 Level 3 home

Structuring a Two-Variable Data Table for a Simulation Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201044 Level 3 home

Completing a Two-Variable Data Table for a Simulation Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201045 Level 3 home

Calculating Simulation Statistics Calculate some statistics about the data; base the analysis on those statistics, not the raw data itself Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201046 Level 3 home

Interpreting Simulation Results Can quantify differences in prices and allow you to make more informed decisions Can be facilitated using a method of aggregating the data, such as statistics functions Succeeding in Business with Microsoft Excel 201047 Level 3 home
