Representing Models as Data

Lenard, Melanie L

ABSTRACT: The design of a model management component begins with choosing a representation for the models in the model base. We propose to represent models as data in a database having a logical structure suggested by the principles of structured modeling. The mathematical functions used in modeling are represented as factorable functions.

Key words and phrases: model management systems, model base, structured modeling, decision support systems
