Product Descriptions:

Vanguard System
The Vanguard System is a state-of-the-art business modeling and knowledge management software tool that integrates all of the key, proven decision analysis techniques as well as artificial intelligence to help you make better business decisions. It supports forecasting, Monte Carlo simulation, optimization, decision tree analysis, statistical analysis, sensitivity analysis, cash flow analysis and reporting, high-level math, expert systems, general modeling, and much more.

With its visual modeling framework, you can effectively communicate your models and analysis to a wide audience, from engineers to analysts to executive management. Using cutting-edge component technology, complex problems are easily broken down and collaboratively modeled across the enterprise as an integrated collection of smaller, reusable component models. A wiki-style knowledge portal allows component models to be organized, searched, distributed, and run by your entire organization using desktop software or just a Web browser.

You can also build and deploy Web-based expert systems that interactively guide users through complex decision-making processes, such as product selection, troubleshooting, and resource allocation.
