Using Monte Carlo Simulation to
Aid Your Medical Device Design

Thursday, May 14, 2020 • 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EDT

Determining the impact of risk and uncertainty in medical device design is critical.

Did you know that Microsoft Excel can help predict product outcomes when combined with Monte Carlo simulation?

Monte Carlo simulation uses random numbers from a variety of statistical distributions to assess risk and uncertainty in forecasting models. With its built-in functions, Excel can generate random numbers to inform simulation, helping practitioners evaluate processes and activities, particularly for models that are difficult to calculate using analytical methods.

Join FDAnews and presenter Dan O’Leary and discover how to use Monte Carlo simulation for medical device design during a webinar Thursday, May 14.

Key Webinar Takeaways:

  • Determine the use of models in assessing activities and processes
  • Critically evaluate the role of Monte Carlo simulation in the model
  • Use Excel to generate random numbers
  • Examine the relationship between probability density functions and cumulative density functions
  • Apply Excel functions that can produce random numbers from various statistical distributions
  • Combine the random numbers in the model to produce results

BONUS MATERIAL: An Excel workbook with examples from the presentation is included.
