Merak believed that an efficient frontier analysis method that combined the robustness of the Monte Carlo approach with the confidence of the Markowitz approach would be a very powerful tool for any industry.

Three subgroups were formed, and each developed a different approach for solving the problem. These were the Portfolio Selection Algorithm Approach, the Statistical Inference Approach, and the Integer Programming Approach
