Each unique path through the node network is called a Scenario Thread. A Scenario can have hundreds of threads. Our Decision Engine algorithm marches through each individual Scenario Thread and calculates everything from cash flow to net worth to active customers to sentiment data. Use the Decision Engine to sort and filter Threads based on profitability, ranks, sentiment or other metrics.
Analyzing countless options can be intimidating. With our Scenario Thread List Manager, track all of your concurrent Threads, sort by profitability, ranks, reviews, or other custom metrics. Favorite Threads. Compare Threads. And use the Manager to present which series of Events make up a given Thread.
The Decision Engine is the core of whatifi. This algorithm calculates, by day, every Event in the Scenario Canvas. It passes metadata about your options between nodes, and allocates funds into different accounts. Where our algorithms differ most is that we also track and factor in reviews, and sentiment data to drive our sort orders and results.
The Baseline is the business’ profile. These nodes capture everything that is real and current; bank account balances, assets, debts, leases, inventory. API integrations ensure that the client’s profile is as accurate as possible. Changes to the Baseline impact all Scenarios.
Whenever there is more than one option to consider, we use a Decision Node. A decision can have multiple branches of nodes.
