Model organization is one of the most important aspects of your model. Without it, your readers will be lost, unable to make sense of how the model is set up. This can lead to many extra hours of time in debugging and making changes to the model. Because it is so easy to add elements to a model, if you don’t spend time organizing the model, you could end up with a large space of jumbled elements thrown across the graphics pane.
This presentation will demonstrate some important design considerations that impact the structure of your model. There will be an emphasis on ideas related to building water management models but the basic concepts are applicable to all types of models. The following topics will be covered:
- Choosing appropriate elements
- Graphics pane layout
- Using Containers
- Organizing input data
- System model and information references
