Analytica for Education

Analytica was designed by a professor (Max Henrion, when he was teaching at Carnegie Mellon) to improve the quality of decision modeling. So it's an a ideal tool for learning the art and science of creating quantitative decision models. Its influence diagrams encourage you to conceptualize complex problems the same way expert analysts do: First identify the key decisions, objectives, and uncertainties, and the influences among them -- before you try to create the underlying mathematical structure. 

Analytica is widely used for teaching and research in leading universities around the World. Analytica models have been used as the basis of hundreds of research articles.   Lumina offers Analytica at about half price for funded research projects. We offer Analytica free for use in the classroom

Our policies and product prices in the Chinese market are different due to regional issues. Please contact our representative in China directly for information about our products or services.


Analytica is currently being used in universities around the world for teaching quantitative modeling and decision analysis. Lumina would like to build on this by making Analytica more accessible as a teaching tool in the classroom. Analytica Free 101 edition is well-suited for classroom applications. Free 101 has all the functionality of Analytica Professional edition, except that it limits the size of models that can be built to 101 objects. We expect that this size will be more than sufficient for classroom work. More.
