Oxford, England - ModelKinetix, a division of software developer FamilyGenetix Ltd., announce a major new release of their simulation modeling software, ModelMaker. This release follows in-depth customer research and uses new software technology to meet the analytical needs of the modeler.

Major new features include Monte Carlo analysis, new optimization methods, stiff equation solving, the ability to archive model status and results and an improved user-interface. ModelMaker is the complete modeling software package for novices and professionals alike.

The use of numerical simulation models is one of the most powerful methods for analyzing and understanding processes.
