Real transaction data held by FMI’s and Banks is highly confidential and hard to get access to. Also, as historical records, it cannot be used as input data in simulations about future infrastructures that may process very different flows.
FNA has developed and vetted in several client projects a method for generating representative transaction data that contains all known network and statistical properties of the real transaction data.
The cost of simulations is lower and the speed at which projects can be completed is higher – lowering the entry barriers to start simulations. Often results with representative data prove the value of the simulations and real data can be used for sensitivity analysis.
