Creating projects in SAS Model Manager just got a lot easier! 😊


With the December 2020.1.1 release, we've included a guided experience to help users set up a new project. The New Project Wizard makes it easier for users to create new SAS Model Manager projects. For instance, you can save a new project after specifying requested information including the model function, model comparison and assessment criteria, input and output variables, user-defined properties, and keywords. This guided experience captures required system- and user-defined project properties to enhance model governance and stage projects for Performance Monitoring and future alerting/retraining, using project KPIs. This feature will be included in the SAS Model Manager 2021.1 LTS.


Here's a quick video showcasing this new guided experience.



This is one of many guided experiences within the SAS Model Manager user interface, enabling all users to evaluate and operationalize models faster and more intuitively.


During the video, you'll notice the wide range of model functions supported by SAS Model Manager. Here's a complete list of supported model functions users select when creating a new project:


Model Function



Function for any model that is not Prediction, Classification, or Segmentation.


Function for models that have target variables that contain binary, categorical, or ordinal values.


Function for clustering models.

Computer vision - Image classification
