Can MBC treat a situation where people allocate among options instead of picking one option?

Is there an equivalent method in MBC that corresponds to what we do with constant sum CBC?

Currently MBC handles only choice data.  We have on occasion added volumes but that takes the analysis well outside of the MBC software as you need to run regression (and technically a regression model like Poisson regression instead of OLS regression if you are analyzing counts instead of constant sum allocations).

You can also check this post (https://www.sawtoothsoftware.com/forum/3258/mbc-and-volumetric-points-allocation-possible) for additional information.  

I hope this helps.
