Description

Harry Markowitz describes the development of the Simscript simulation language at Rand Corporation and how he and Herb Kerr founded CACI in order to market Simscript I.5 commercially. He discusses pricing issues and competitive products to Simscript and to CACI's data storage and retrieval product, Qwick Qwery. He covers the evolution of the Simscript product from the initial version developed at Rand and the acquisition by CACI of Simscript II Plus, developed by Phil Kiviat, which became the commercially successful product Simscript II.5.
