Variable dimension bridge analysis returns many result combinations, which are all algoritmically correct, but might be more or less insightful, and therefore usefull to you.

To increase the probability of surfacing the more insightful scenarios 'Mparanza uses euristics: it offers a certain number of "scenarios". Each "scenario" is a set parameter settings, designed to maximize the probability that the result will have certain characteristics.

The default scenario is the "choose the largest combinations" scenario that essentially returns the combinations in order of variance size.


In default mode, given the choice of a scenario, the app will select the top ranked combination as the top result, net the value of that combination from all remaining combinations, and run the loop again, to return the second result, and so on.

Without changing parameters, you can, for instance ask the app, to skip the first result, and select the second top ranked combination as the top result. This will result in a different set of results, without changing parameters.


You can fine a result tune, by modifying the single parameters.
