  Data Quality Pedigree Calculator  Popular
Description: Microsoft Excel® 97 for Windows® workbook file, pedigree.xls, that supports the calculation of data quality pedigrees using the Microsoft Excel Visual Basic program referenced in Ellis et al. (2000).
This tool, developped by Erle Ellis et al. can be used to enter pedigrees for variables in standardized worksheets and to evaluate how the pedigree propagates in a calculation.
Includes interactive demonstration, examples and manuals.

  SIMLAB  Popular
Description: SimLab 1.1 is a free software package designed for Monte Carlo analysis developed at the Applied Statistics Group at the EC Joint Research Centre. SimLab is made of three modules. These modules cover all the activities of a Monte Carlo analysis.
1. The Statistical Pre Processor takes care that a range and distribution are selected for each input factor. These selections are used in the generation of a sample from the input factors. the first and second step of Monte Carlo analysis.
2. The Model Execution runs the model for each sample element.
3. The Statistical Post Processor takes care of the uncertainty analysis. One way to characterise the uncertainty is with a mean value and a variance. The Statistical Post Processor also performs the sensitivity analysis based on an exploration of the mapping from analysis input to analysis results.
