A brief history of ModelAssist
ModelAssist is distributed and supported by EpiX Analytics LLC. ModelAssist for Crystal Ball and @Risk were originally developed and commercialized by Vose Consulting in 2004 with the goal of providing a comprehensive quantitative risk analysis reference. In October 2010, Vose Consulting US LLC changed ownership and was renamed EpiX Analytics LLC. Since then, EpiX has made ModelAssist available online as a software-neutral single version wiki-style repository of simulation modeling and risk analysis methodology and continues to update it regularly.
