ISO 28640:2010 specifies methods for generating uniform and non-uniform random variates for Monte Carlo simulation purposes. Cryptographic random number generation methods are not included. ISO 28640:2010 is applicable, inter alia, by

  • researchers, industrial engineers or experts in operations management, who use statistical simulation,
  • statisticians who need randomization related to SQC methods, statistical design of experiments or sample surveys,
  • applied mathematicians who plan complex optimization procedures that require the use of Monte Carlo methods, and
  • software engineers who implement algorithms for random variate generation.
