Distribution Help!!!

Post by grayven87 » Sun Jun 02, 2019 6:05 am

Hi everyone,

I am running a model that requires a Beta distribution with parameters 0.62 and 0.82 but apparently with Vensim, more parameters like shift and scale are needed.Can anyone please guide me through the calculation method for these extra parameters so I can run the model successfully?

For any distribution, shift=0 & scale=1 gives you a standard version.
