Definicja what-if analysis
A model of a potential solution or scenario constructed by a planner in response to a planning problem.
A what-if analysis involves a complex set of calculations performed on system data that has been temporarily copied from the system to a safe area of the application. To the planner, these simulations look like different versions of system data. Once an appropriate simulation has been accepted, the live system data is changed according to the design of the simulation.
Simulations are most useful for planners - demand, supply, production, and logistics - but anyone involved in supply chain management can also benefit from what-if analysis.
