Decision-making, running "what if" scenarios, process control in manufacturing, financial/asset program management.


The program utilizes the Performance Orientation Chart (POC) to aid the decision maker throughout an interactive decision-making process. This program can handle a multivariable input to ascertain the influence of all decisions on the final possibilities and allow some measure of predictability.
