Constructing a General Model

Return to Stochastic Models

To create a general model, select the General option from the OR_MM Dialog. The dialog below is presented. On the dialog, choose either Markov Chain or Markov Process model. Specify the numbers of state and event variables together with the default minimums and maximums. The Transition Block entry determines the number of transition blocks placed on the worksheet.

The worksheet created has the state and event arrays created with the proper dimensions. The student must add data and formulas to model his or her problem. Review the discussion concerning prebuild models for instructions on model creation.
