POMQM can be installed on your own computer from the CD that
came with the HeizerRender text.
Remember, you can't install anything on the school computers.
You can also download demo version 8 of EXTEND from the
vendor. These also must be installed. These run under Vista/win 7.
Imagine That! Website with more EXTEND Resources. Demo V8 is under the downloads link, but you have to install it and models can't be saved.

For some reason I don't understand there is
a reproducible
problem in the school system with EXCEL 2007 that an attempt to
generate
sensitivity data in EXCEL SOLVER at this point results in an
outofmemory
error. I have reproduced this problem in Vista and EXCEL 2007 on my own system, so made a video for it. The workaround is to solve without sensitivity analysis, then resolve and get the sensitivity analysis.The second time around, it works. you have to go through a full cycle to a successful solution before going back to get the sensitivity report. That is, solve without asking for sensitivity, then go back into solver and solve again, this time asking for the sensitivity report. If you solve, ask for sensitivity, get the error, then solve again and again ask for sensitivity, you will have an endless cyle of errors. Remember: insanity is doing the same thing repetitively and expecting something different to happen. I've not yet reproduced this problem in EXCEL SOLVER 2010, but there are other issues.
