Whatís New - WinORSai

Microsoft Office ® Compatibility

WinORS continues to evolve.  Version 3.0, the next major release of WinORSai, will have superior support for the Microsoft Office ® product series. The new version 3  series of the WinORS analytical system will have a look and feel that is truly Microsoft Excel-like.  While WinORS is not designed to be an Excel replacement, it is important to leverage the learning curve most users develop from their initial introduction to a computer.

Consulting - Advances in ALM and RBF-ANN

The NKD Group modeling team has reached a new level of sophistication in its modeling capabilities. Based on recently published results generated by optimizers in the WinORS software product, the consulting division has just recently extended its asset-liability-management skills to the property-liability insurer.

Working with one the Nationís largest pharmaceutical firms, the consulting division has just recently demonstrated the ability of our proprietarily enhanced version of the Kajiji-4 radial basis function neural network to classify and forecast the performance of new drug discovery. In a blind international competition the Kajiji-4 results were found to be superior in all tests.
