KnowledgeMiner Software has introduced Ockham 1.0 for Mac OS X Yosemite (and higher), an app for performing sensitivity analyses for a number of model parameters.

It’s based on self-organizing analysis concepts, and it is designed as a 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 reads data representing a mathematical model in an open Excel worksheet to perform a global sensitivity analysis of the model. The app’s approach to global sensitivity analysis considers both single parameters and interactions between model parameters

Ockham 1.0 pricing starts at US$15 and is available at the KnowledgeMiner Software website ( A demo version is available for download.
