Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

’Latin hypercube sampling (LHS) is a form of stratified sampling that can be applied to multiple variables. The method commonly used to reduce the number or runs necessary for a Monte Carlo simulation to achieve a reasonably accurate random distribution. LHS can be incorporated into an existing Monte Carlo model fairly easily, and work with variables following any analytical probability distribution.’
