[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - KnowledgeMiner Software today is pleased to announce Ockham 1.0 for Mac OS X, its innovative app for performing rigorous sensitivity analyses for a high number of model parameters. Ockham is based on self-organizing analysis concepts, and it is designed to be a valuable tool in academic research and for industry practitioners across a wide spectrum of disciplines including but not limited to environmental engineers, pharmaceutical scientists, oil and gas reservoir simulation engineers, government agencies and local authorities.
Ockham is a novel and easy to use tool, which reads data representing a mathematical model in an open Excel worksheet to perform a global sensitivity analysis of the model. Ockham's new and original approach to global sensitivity analysis considers both single parameters and interactions between model parameters as a more complete, more accurate, and safer assessment of uncertainty than 'one-factor-at-a-time' approaches used in other commercial software.
* High degree of automation by implementation of original self-organizing modelling concepts proven in other products of the company for many years
* Based on the theory of variance-based global sensitivity analysis (Sobol indices)
* Determines the influence of not only single parameters but also their interactions
* Simple, one-click communication with Excel to read data and to report analysis results back to Excel or other apps
"Sensitivity analysis is a crucially important tool for assessing and validating complex models," commented Dr Romain Lambert of Imperial College London and author of the method implemented by KnowledgeMiner Software. "Ockham allows without special knowledge in sensitivity analysis to identify most important drivers of models most objectively and easily from a small set of observational data. I invite everyone interested in Ockham to download our free Demo version."
* English, French, and German
* OS X 10.10 or higher
* 64-bit CPU
* Microsoft Excel for Mac version 2011
Pricing and Availability:
Ockham 1.0 starts at $15 (USD), and it is available worldwide exclusively through the KnowledgeMiner Software website. A free Demo version is available for download. Review copies are available on request.
