VORSIM - A Model Building Framework for Microsoft ExcelEntry ID: USDA0430
Abstract: "VORSIM - A Model Building Framework for Microsoft Excel" is a
computer program which helps the user build and simulate
mathematical models in the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. VORSIM
can be used to build time series models with tags, static
partial equilibrium economic models, engineering process models,
or business plan models for sensitivity analysis of key
assumptions. VORSIM is especially ... useful for the construction of
large spreadsheet models with groups of standardized equation
structions. Since models and associated files created by VORSIM
reside in spreadsheets, all of the capabilities of Excel are
available for model building. Successful VORSIM modeling
requires spreadsheet skills and knowledge about mathematical
