Walls & Co.’s development of comprehensive decision support systems enables clients to better integrate their strategy and capital allocation processes. With this focus on developing workable and practical solutions to complex business problems, we develop customized, PC-based applications for decision-making, finance and valuation.
Recent solutions include:
A decision-science and econometric based model for bid decisions in the Gulf of Mexico. The SmartBid™ software was developed to meet the needs of exploration and development decision-makers who recognize that bid outcomes can be highly uncertain. By explicitly linking historical bidding behavior and a forward-looking decision analysis model, bid decisions are dramatically improved by increasing the chance of winning and avoiding the ubiquitous overbid or winner's curse that costs operators millions of dollars in overbidding.
