Analytical Model Software Integration Methods
Byron M. Garton
This document explores and describes the methods and technologies developed and employed at the Engineer Research and Development Center-Information Technology Library (ERDC-ITL) to integrate various software models created by Principle Investigators (PIs) as part of the Integrated Climate Assessment for Army Enterprise Planning work package into a single software package. These software models identify and calculate various metrics related to the effects of climate change and its potential impact on force stationing, and are intended to be used in future analyses for the purpose of determining optimal force stationing. This software integration effort sought to understand these independently conceived and developed software models, capture and preserve them in their current state, and integrate them into a common computational environment while simultaneously documenting and optimizing their functionality. This work ensures that future analysis of climate change metrics will be easily accessible and executable by those seeking the data.
