Operating system for digital computers, developed by Ken Thompson of Bell Laboratories in 1969. It was initially designed for a single user (the name was a pun on the earlier operating system Multics). workstations. A production release of the intuitive interface solution for design of experiments is anticipated later this year.
The ADX Interface supports all areas of the experimental design process from construction of the design and analysis of the response data to optimization and reporting of the results. The ADX Interface supports these areas through an extensive list of available designs, powerful and reliable model-fitting techniques, interactive graphics, intuitive and flexible interface, and text and HTML HTML

SAS (1) (SAS Institute Inc., Cary, NC, www.sas.com) A software company that specializes in data warehousing and decision support software based on the SAS System. Founded in 1976, SAS is one of the world's largest privately held software companies. See SAS System. (R) software provides a comprehensive solution set for statistical quality control and quality improvement. Basic problem-solving methods, statistical process control, capability analysis and experimental design play key roles in modern statistical quality improvement initiatives. During the 1990s, the application of these methods has become well established in the aerospace, automotive, electronics, pharmaceutical, semiconductor, and other manufacturing industries. These methods are also being explored by the service industry, including banks, insurance companies, government agencies, and health care organizations.
The new ADX Interface is an important addition to SAS/QC(R) software, our suite of tools for statistical quality improvement. SAS/QC software exemplifies what SAS(R) software in general does so well, going after data wherever it is, turning it into useful information for intelligent decision making, and delivering it wherever needed," said Donna Fulenwider, SAS Institute program manager of quality improvement. "SAS Institute has more than 20 years of understanding customer needs and solving complex business problems and the new ADX Interface is indicative of our commitment to provide software that makes a difference."
Now in its 22nd year, SAS Institute is one of the top ten largest independent software vendors in the world, and is the largest privately held software company. The leading provider of data warehousing and decision-support software, the Institute has won DM Review's 1997 Data Acquisition/Delivery award for Data Warehousing. Other awards include the reader-selected 1996 and 1997 Datamation magazine Data Warehousing Product of the Year award, the 1997 Database Programming & Design Database Dozen award, and Software Magazine's Editor's Choice award for decision-support.
SAS Institute provides an integrated suite of information-delivery tools that allow companies to transform the wide variety of data within their organization into information that business users need to make decisions. To make data useful, SAS(R) software collects data from almost every platform and data format; cleans and transforms data into information that users will understand; and stores that information in an open and efficient data warehouse structure. To explore that information, SAS software includes OLAP (OnLine Analytical Processing) Decision support software that allows the user to quickly analyze information that has been summarized into multidimensional views and hierarchies. OLAP tools are used to perform trend analysis on sales and financial information. , query and reporting, EIS (1) (Executive Information System) An information system that consolidates and summarizes ongoing transactions within the organization. It provides top management with all the information it requires at all times from internal and external sources. , data mining, analysis, data visualization, and application-development interfaces. SAS software is client/server and Web enabled. SAS Institute also delivers business solutions that are complete packages for financial consolidation and reporting, clinical trials analysis, oil and gas analysis and IT service management. Currently, SAS software and business solutions are being used at more than 31,000 business, government, and university sites in more than 120 countries.
