4. What is UNIPASS?

UNIPASS® is a commercial, general-purpose, probabilistic software tool developed by, PredictionProbe's. UNIPASS® has been developed by the founders of PredictionProbe, Inc., Drs. Khalessi and Hong-Zong Lin and is being continuously enhanced and developed by PredictionProbe Team of Probabilistic Technology experts. This software is a PC-based Windows 32 compliant software engine that can be utilized independently, as a stand-alone software engine, and/or integrated with deterministic software tools to perform complex probabilistic analyses. In the analysis, UNIPASS® provides the basis for modeling uncertainties, computing probabilities, identifying most likely outcomes, and calculating sensitivity measures, while the deterministic software tools (if integrated) provide the computational framework for constructing complex deterministic process models. The UNIX-based process models and their associated deterministic software may be integrated with UNIPASS® using PredictionProbe's proprietary software UniFace.
