“Monte Carlo does not resolve constraints to generate solutions. In order to run Monte Carlo there needs to be a solution in the first place.”VP of Product at ALICE
In essence, we have two distinct phases (see image below):
The above schema illustrates how a Monte Carlo simulation can be applied to a schedule generated by ALICE.
The steps can be summarized as follows:
