Overview

The Interactive Financial Planning System (abbreviated Visual IFPS /Plus) was originally developed in the early 1970's by Dr. Gerald R. Wagner (then a professor at The University of Texas at Austin) and his students. Its original impetus came from the desire to model risk in a way that could be easily understood by executives. The implementation that resulted is a general - purpose financial panning language that is particularly user friendly. Since then, Visual EFPS / Plus has been developed further and marketed by COMSHARE, Incorporated of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and has been widely adopted in both industry and universities.
