The Markov Analysis
Add-in performs a wide range of computations associated
with discrete time Markov processes (DTMC) and continuous
time Markov processes (CTMC). The add-in is may be
used independently or may be called from add-ins in
Collection. When the add-in is installed, the items
on the left are added to the OR_MM menu.
The add-in creates and analyzes either the
DTMC (often called Markov Chain), or CTMC (often called
Markov Process) models. Click on a link to the left to
see illustrations of the two types. This section gives
illustrations of how the add-in is used. There are more
examples of the DTMC and CTMCin
the Models section of this site.
The Start command replaces buttons
on the worksheets created by this add-in. The Finish command
removes all the buttons and user-defined functions. This
makes it simpler to open a data file on a different computer
without generating a link error message. It is better
to remove the buttons before saving. Use the Finish command
to accomplish this. When a workbook is subsequently opened,
the Start command makes the worksheets functional.
The example files for this add-in have been saved with
the buttons removed. For a full discussion of this feature
is the Start/Finish page
of the DP Collection.
