In this video, Imke takes us through carrying out advanced scenario modelling in Power BI, with a focus on Power Query. The scenario here is that we want to model Shipping/Marketing/Overhead costs as calculate sales revenue/net profit.
These depend on a number variables including the version of the product (Standard/Premium - each of them has a different set of fixed and variable costs) and the sensitivity to drivers such as price, quantity and exchange rates. Using a series of simple tables in excel as inputs, Imke shows how to produce:
• Sensitivity Analysis charts in Power BI showing how sensitive net profit is to a % change in Sales of the Premium/Standard product • Tornado charts showing the specific changes (in either direction) for a particular driver: e.g. showing how much net profit increases or decreases if price increases or decreases by 5%.
• Having different scenarios (with the excel input defining which drivers can be flexed and by how much under each scenario) selectable through a slicer to show the impact of each scenario on net profit.
• A monte carlo simulation with the number of iterations (e.g. 1000 or 10000) defined through a Power Query parameter, and the probability of the various driver values - in this case exchange rates - calculated using actual historical exchange rates from Yahoo Finance.
