RiverWare Training: Rulebased Simulation Modeling
Colorado River
August 26–28, 2020 (Wed–Fri)
  Early Registration Deadline: Pay on or before Aug 17
 Important Notice

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting concerns regarding public health, coupled with restrictions on travel, the Rulebased Simulation course is online with live instruction and group participation. We are using the video-conferencing platform Zoom (https://zoom.us).

The class has been extended to encompass 3 days, and will start Wednesday, August 26 at 9am MDT and end Friday, August 28 by 4pm.

Here is a draft agenda, with scheduled times for presentations and group sessions. The schedule allows some flexibility in the amount of time spent working on and completing the tutorial exercises.

As part of the preparation for the class, we will ship a training manual to each registered attendee and make sure each has required resources, including a temporary RiverWare license and needed files.

If you plan to register, please do so soon, as the class size is limited. When filling out the registration form, please be sure to use the address to which you wish the manual shipped.

 Course Description

Rulebased Simulation Modeling is a course for users who have a thorough understanding of pure simulation as covered in the Simulation course and wish to develop models that use rule logic for operational policies that drive the solution. It has been taught for over 20 years by the RiverWare research and development team. The course includes both lectures and self-guided tutorials.

This course teaches you the details of how rulebased simulation works and how to build a policy set. We spend considerable time on the solution methodologies used in rulebased simulation, which build heavily upon the solution methodologies of the simulation solution. You learn how to write rules using the RiverWare Policy Language, and we guide you through an interactive exercise converting written operations policy into a rule set. We show you how to analyze and debug the model runs and document and create reports about your model and policy set. Finally, we present advanced topics that provide additional functionality that may be useful in your modeling efforts.
