5 THE ROLE OF COMPUTERS AND SPREADSHEET MODELS IN THE QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS APPROACH 9 minimize manufacturing costs while maintaining a certain quality level. If we know all these values with certainty, the model is deterministic. Other models involve risk or chance. 4). Models that involve chance or risk, often measured as a probability value, are called probabilistic models. In this book, we will investigate both deterministic and probabilistic models. 5 The Role of Computers and Spreadsheet Models in the Quantitative Analysis Approach Developing a solution, testing the solution, and analyzing the results are important steps in the quantitative analysis approach.

A. Beis, et al. “PLATO Helps Athens Win Gold: Olympic Games Knowledge Modeling for Organizational Change and Resource Management,” Interfaces 36, 1 (January–February 2006): 26–42. Implementation—Not Just the Final Step We have just presented some of the many problems that can affect the ultimate acceptance of the quantitative analysis approach and use of its models. It should be clear now that implementation isn’t just another step that takes place after the modeling process is over. Each one of these steps greatly affects the chances of implementing the results of a quantitative study.
