Typically, yes. One of a variety of software packages are used to compute the power spectrum given the set of cosmological parameters (many are listed here under the "CMB Tools" sub-header, confusingly the same as the header).

Then, some form of Monte Carlo chain is used to determine the probability distribution given a likelihood function (which stems from one or more experiments). Both Planck and WMAP supply software which can be used to calculate the likelihood that a given power spectrum matches their CMB data.
