The purpose of this presentation is to help GoldSim users who want to compare GoldSim model results to results of similar calculations done in a spreadsheet. Because of fundamental differences between spreadsheets and dynamic simulators like GoldSim, people sometimes have difficulty comparing time-dependent results in the two programs.
This webinar first shows the differences between dynamic simulation tools (i.e., GoldSim) and spreadsheets. Following this introduction, we will discuss some problems people commonly encounter when comparing GoldSim results to spreadsheet results. This webinar is intended to help the modeler appreciate the differences between dynamic simulation and spreadsheet modeling and provide instruction on how to avoid the problems that might arise in your applications that rely on spreadsheets.
