These example files can be used to see how a tool has been used for a given analysis. The example files usually have a problem worksheet describing the problem being addressed. It may also have a worksheet that stores any data required for the analysis. Finally, a solution tab contains the results of the analysis. The examples file is self-contained. All the data and options needed can be found within the examples workbook.

You can view the solution tab to understand how the Analysis Setup options were specified, how data was entered into the worksheet, and review what notes and graphs were generated for a given analysis. You can change any input and click on Compute Outputs to regenerate the analysis results. Open File
