SAS Institute Inc. has long developed software for data analysis, econometrics, operations research, and quality improvement. The purpose of these pages is to provide our users with technical information about using this software, including details about software capabilities, examples, papers, and an associated e-newsletter.
The following Advanced Analytics products have recently been updated with the 13.1 release:
SAS/ETS introduces the HPCDM, HPCOPULA, and HPPANEL procedures, and the SASEFRED interface engine.
SAS/OR includes new features and enhancements to current features in optimization, discrete-event simulation, and constraint programming. In addition to ongoing improvements in the performance of the linear, mixed integer, quadratic, and general nonlinear optimization solver algorithms, these changes expand the range of problems you can address, make it easier to use the SAS/OR modeling and solution methods, deepen integration with other SAS analytic capabilities, and more fully utilize your available computational resources.
SAS/QC includes enhancements to the CAPABILITY, MVPMONITOR, RELIABILITY, and SHEWHART procedures, along with new macros for evaluating the measurement process and measurement system analysis.
SAS/IML includes enhancements to the SAS/IML language syntax; new statistical functions, subroutines, and modules; support for additional distributions and parameters for generating random samples; and new graphical functions for visualizing data in a matrix as a heat map.
SAS/STAT introduces new procedures for Bayesian discrete choice models, nonparametric survival analysis for interval-censored data, and item response models, as well as many significant enhancements to existing procedures.
