RiverWare
Training: Rulebased Simulation Modeling in RiverWare Colorado River
March 8–10, 2017 • Registration is Closed
 
 Course Description
 

Rulebased Simulation Modeling is a course for users who have already completed the Introduction to Simulation Modeling course and wish to begin learning rulebased simulation. It has been taught for over 17 years by the CADSWES engineers and researchers who develop RiverWare software. This course teaches the user how to incorporate policy as data into their RiverWare models. In this training, you will learn to construct rules and rulesets, and will gain experience in converting written policy into rules, implementing rulesets, testing, and debugging models. The course includes both lectures and self-guided tutorials as well as interactive group projects.

The detailed training manual will serve as a valuable reference for future use in writing rules in RiverWare. A considerable amount of time is spent on the solution methodologies used in rulebased simulation, which build heavily upon the solution methodologies taught in the Introduction to Simulation Modeling class.

Special meetings and sessions can be arranged to answer your modeling questions or discuss your particular modeling needs. Please let us know in advance (see Notifications and Questions below) if you would like to schedule a special session to discuss the application of RiverWare to a particular basin.
