Triangular Distributions   

The Triangular distribution is similar to the normal distribution strategy, but has a greater range of numbers in the middle of the distribution scale that are more likely to be generated at random, as shown in the following image:

The Triangular distribution has four settings:

  • Minimum - The lowest possible number that might be generated at random.
  • Maximum - The highest possible number that might be generated at random.
  • Mode - The most common number that will be generated at random.
  • Stream - Determines which one of FlexSim's random number streams should be used to generate these random numbers. Typically you won't need to edit this parameter.

When you make changes to the settings, the blue bar graph will update to display the probabilities that certain numbers will be generated.
