After 19 months of work, we are releasing MBC v1 today! 82 beta testers have been involved in the process, and due their excellent assistance we feel this is a very clean release. Menu-Based Choice (MBC) opens up a new world of discrete choice modeling possibilities for capable Sawtooth Software users who have some training in econometrics and discrete choice modeling. It's truly remarkable what you can accomplish with MBC.
We recommend you buy the software right now, or give it a try by downloading the demo version and working through the tutorial.

After installing the software, we recommend you read at least the first few introductory chapters of the Help Manual (available by clicking Help + Product Manual PDF). Then, you can use the sample dataset installed with MBC software (CarBinaryDVs.csv) to analyze your first MBC project. The Tutorial describing that dataset and how to use MBC software to model it is found by clicking Help + Online Help + Introduction + Quick-Start and Introduction and then by clicking the Tutorial link at the top of that page.
