Manufacturing and Transportation

Several companies in the manufacturing and transportation industries prefer using Analytica for quantitative modeling. Claude Marbach, of Rexam Beverage Can America, offers a great explanation for this - “We couldn’t figure out a way to do with Excel, what was easy to do and display in Analytica. For us, its key benefits are the visual representation of the models, being easily understood by upper management, the range of values for key variables, and that it lets us narrow the view to key variables.” Analytica offers transparency with visual influence diagrams, representation of uncertainties with rapid Monte Carlo, and scalability with flexibility and modularity that provides experienced analysts with a new modeling paradigm. Below are a few noteworthy examples of important Analytica models from these industries.
