CVA v3 Experimental Designer Better than Before
With the recent release of CVA v3, all three base Sawtooth Software conjoint systems are now integrated within the SMRT platform. (SMRT stands for "Sawtooth Software Market Research Tools".) While we are pleased with the added ease-of-use and polish the new Windows-based CVA offers, we are particularly excited about the improvements in the experimental designer. For starters, rewriting and compiling the program for the 32-bit operating system produced about a 5x speed improvement. But more importantly, increasing the "pool multiplier" capacity and an alteration to the existing algorithm significantly improved the designer.
