*Follow
the logic of a model a year on*

Most
programmers know that when you come back in two weeks you will have forgotten how you did the calculations. In Atebion a Variable
is identified by its own descriptive name. Equations appear in standard
language such as:

*[Total
Fixed Cost Prod A] + [Total Variable Cost Prod A] = *

*[Unit
Cost Prod A] * [Total Work Load Prod A]*

This avoids unintelligible
Cell references and in addition any object can have additional comments attached and freely visible.

The full name of each
variable will be shown as follows:

* [Folder Name] [Column Name]
[Roy Name]*

* *

*Note: Most users will never
see a single equation.*

*Structure
thousands of sheets for easy navigation*

Tens,
hundreds or even thousands of sheets can be structured in an alterable tree like structure
(similar to Windows Explorer® file manager) for easy navigation and a clear understanding of any model.

**NOTE: ***In Atebion we force you to structure your model*. Navigation is an important issue. How would people navigate without Windows Explorer® file manager?

*Model the way you work and in a way you know how*

By
using Equations instead of one-way formula you model the way you work without thinking how to convert your understanding of
the tasks to formula(s), this also makes it easier for others to follow your logic.

*Goal seek without re-designing your model*

After
you have defined your relationships in Atebion you can reverse any inputs and outputs.
This gives you the ability to goal seek without editing a single Equation. More advanced
or frequent "What ifs" may be controlled by the use of macros where you can automatically swap known and unknown variable
attributes and automatically switch appropriate equations on and off if needed.

*{if spreadsheets add “What if …?” to standard
BASIC, then Atebion adds “What about …?” to spreadsheets.] No
need to buy those add-ons that don’t really work well}.*

*Find logical
errors and inconsistencies within a model*

Special
and unique diagnostic tools identify logical errors and inconsistencies in Atebion. Such cases as unsolvable task or unstable (continuous) solutions are highlighted by
the program and errors are easily traced in most models.

Atebion
can also display a list of all Equations acting on a Variable and all Variables involved in a particular Equation. By alternately selecting Equations and Variables you can "drill down" through a system of Equations to
identify how a value is derived.

Select
any variable and immediately see what it depends on, or it influences, with a break down of each calculational step.

*Interactive Graphs*

As you highlight a
variable in a sheet you can see the corresponding point on a graph or highlight a point on a graph and you will see the corresponding
sheet with the corresponding cell highlighted. Allows the busy manager to immediately
see where the point on the graph comes from.

*Save
and Add sub-projects*

Different users can
work on different models which can be saved as a whole or part of, then added or substituted at any time into a master model.
This allows you to build more manageable, modular template solutions, which can be combined into a bigger, more complex solution.

The top report sheet
of our hospital diagnostic departments costing models feeds the surgical departments costing models with a price list.

*Model Feedback Processes*

Many real
systems involve feedback processes ‘A’ depends on ‘B’ which it self depends on ‘A’. In reality these situations involve simultaneous Equations that Atebion solves automatically. As an example this is ideal for cross charging overheads where 5% of finance budget
goes to supplies and 6% of supplies budget goes to finance (no more circular argument errors. *[It is always beneficial to
make the tool fit your system, rather than making your system fit the tool.]*

*Extended Equation Syntax *

Equation Syntax is just a means to assist you to write Equations in shorthand.
You can still write all Equations in long hand but why walk everywhere when you have purchased a car?

Syntax can save considerable work. e.g. For example: if you have three sheets of identical size, named Budget,
Actual and Variance, only one Equation is needed to calculate all the variance values of each Cell. This single equation can
be extended to cover additional sheets when you insert keywords in Folder names.

We have one customer whom has over 1,600 sheets with over 1,400,000 calculated values. There are only 160 equations,
one for each rule.

*Test
Equations*

After
you create a more complex equation or to assist you with understanding someone else’s equation (especially where advanced
syntax is used), you can use the Test Equation button to see the results after the computer breaks down complex equations
into their basic parts.

*Create customized reports with automatic linked equations *

Automatically create
linked reports without the need to write a single equation.

*Best
fitting solution where no solution is found*

On calculation if
no perfect solution is found then you will have the option to load the best fitting solution found, even if it does not match
all your limitations. You can then decide if these values are acceptable without any further work.

*Shorter
Model
Building times*

The time it will take
to build a real working business model in Atebion is much less than it would take in spreadsheets. The larger the model, the more time saved, and then you have the added advantages of other trained developers
being able to follow your logic and edit your model.

*User
Defined Functions*

The developer has the ability to write
their own user defined mathematical functions.

*User
Defined Macro facilities*

By using Atebion’s
Macro facilities the user can greatly reduce the time and errors when updating a standard model.

*User
Version of the Atebion Software*

To minimize errors
we have a User Version of the software to edit standard models that have been created in the Professional Developers Version.
The user won’t be able to carry out commands except by the use of macros.

*User
Defined Functions*

The developer has the ability to write
their own user defined mathematical functions.

*Access and User Model Protection*

The software program
can only be leased and comes in three versions:

· *Professional Developers Version:* This is restricted to fully trained
approved model developers. This version is the same as the Standard Developers Version but with the additional feature to
create macro controlled user models which simplify end user training and minimizes errors during the day to day editing and
reporting (see the costing model example). Models created in this version can not be edited by the Standard Developers Version
which gives extra protection to what we call Core Models.

· *Standard Developers Version:* Full developer’s version **excluding** the Macro Editor. Users can create and edit models, except those last saved in the Professional Developers
Version.

· *User Version:* This version can load Standard Developers Models
but with restricted commands available for the day to day user in order to minimize errors.
Standard Core Models which require access to more advanced commands which are not available in the User Version may
use the Macros created in the Professional Developers Version (see the costing model example).

Ensuring that errors are kept to the minimum and users can not do illegal
actions, the Professional Developers version can simplify complex models like the Standard Costing Model so that day to day
users with minimum training can only update allowed figures and create allowed reports using the User Version,
