Interface and Data Management for Large Scale Optimization Modelsby Kenneth Kirby,
Abstract: (No paper) This paper presents ideas regarding how different groups of data can be stored and utilized, especially in the context of water resource policy discussions involving different public interests. To help understand and manage data related to water resource system modeling, the data can be classified into three groups: Model input -- inflow hydrologies, physical system characteristics, and economic values Model output -- results from the mathematical model Meta data -- information about the model input data and output data. Some approaches to software development are presented that utilize commonly used software such as spreadsheets and relational databases. These familiar software packages are customized to help make specialized databases and complex models more accessible to people that are not professional modelers, while improving the professional modeler's ability to conduct large-scale optimization model analyses.
