TradeAnalyzer v4.0 User Guide


Eric R. Mixon, Joshua Q. Church, Kenneth D. Niles, and Timothy W. Garton


This document describes the usage of TradeAnalyzer, a subcomponent of the overarching Engineering Resilient Systems (ERS) tool suite known as TradeStudio. TradeStudio is a generalized and reusable workflow engine used for accelerating common tradespace assembly tasks. TradeAnalyzer supports the ERS effort by developing more comprehensive and complete tradespaces, facilitating Department of Defense (DoD) conceptual design pipelines to the High Performance Computer (HPC), and by solving cross cutting issues in the design process. TradeAnalyzer serves as an enterprise level web application designed to assist the user in visualizing and analyzing a tradespace. The analytics and visualizations provided act as a suite for decision support in down selecting to the best possible subset for the mission. The products provided by TradeAnalyzer include Large Data Analytics and Visualization (LDV) tools which use high performance, server-side rendering.
