I'm trying to use Alteryx to simulate my company's supply chain. We have a demand with high variability and would like to run a simulation (say 5,000 iterations) that shows what inventory levels across the globe would be based on current production runs and demand forecast.
Is this possible using Alteryx?
To note, I've never used the Alteryx simulation tool.
As always, thanks to the community for any insights/examples/tips you can provide.
I continue to avoid building macros when there is a reasonable work-around. In the sample that @Philip provided you (a very good and sound solution), the 5,000 iterations take roughly 2.7 seconds to complete. I used all of the logic from that macro to create a non-iterative approach (via generate rows) and solve the same problem in 0.3 seconds.
@JoeM puts the challenges out there and I guess so do you now.
