Japanese Food Corporation Kewpie and the University of Tokyo Employ @RISK to Ensure Safety of Eggs
Liquid eggs are used as an ingredient in many foods around the world. The risk of Listeria bacteria in eggs, which can lead to illness or even death, is a serious threat to a crucial food source. Kewpie Corporation, a major Japanese producer of liquid eggs, researched the risks of these bacteria in cooperation with the University of Tokyo. The researchers used @RISK software to accurately measure the risks, resulting in vital findings for the food safety industry.

@RISK I thought this conference was eye-opening.

      and different perspectives on using the

Case Study
@RISK, PrecisionTree Critical in
Preparing for Volcano Eruption

Like many analysts who use Palisade software, Willy Aspinall is faced with a mountain of data. But he is also faced with a mountain of molten lava. A British physicist who specializes in risk analysis of earthquakes and volcano eruptions, Willy has an ongoing assignment on the Caribbean island of Montserrat-to keep tabs on the Soufriere Hills volcano and the risks it poses to the inhabitants of the island. This means continuous modeling, with myriad variables. Not surprisingly, Willy, as a long-time Palisade customer, relies on @RISK and PrecisionTree.

Product Spotlight
Modeling Daily Expenses of
a Business Traveler

This model simulates the daily expenses of a business traveler who faces uncertainty each day on whether he makes a trip, and if so, the miles, miles per hour, miles per gallon, and price per gallon for the trip. Its outputs are total cost and total hours driven for a month, and it uses the RiskCollect function to enable sensitivity analysis of these outputs to "inputs" of interest, such as the average miles per gallon per trip.
