Concept Home » JAS-mine » Concept Concept The philosophy of JAS-mine is always to favour clarity, transparency and flexibility. Learn how it achieves these objectives in the sections below: Introduction JAS-mine is an open-source, object-oriented Java-based platform for discrete-event simulations which integrates tools for agent-based and dynamic microsimulation modelling. > Clarity JAS-mine implements a Model – Collector – Observer paradigm to separate model specification from implementation issues. Code and data are neatly separated as well. > Transparency Transparent coding, through adherence to the open source paradigm and extension of the standard Java language, for transparent modelling. Input-Output communication Relational Database Management System is used to store the data, and separate input and output from the model. The JAS-mine engine Learn about the scheduler and how JAS-mine manages the time in the simulation.
