Computer Aided Modelling – Opportunities and Challenges

Ian Cameron, Rafiqul Gani

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


This chapter considers the opportunities that are present in developing, extending and applying aspects of computer-aided modelling principles and practice. What are the best tasks to be done by modellers and what needs the application of CAPE tools? How do we efficiently develop model-based solutions to significant problems? The important issues of workflow and data flow are discussed together with fit-for-purpose model development. As well, the lack of tools around multiscale modelling provides opportunities for the development of efficient tools to address such challenges. The ability to easily generate new models from underlying phenomena continues to be a challenge, especially in the face of time and cost constraints.Integrated frameworks that allow flexibility of model development and access to a range of embedded tools are central to future model developments. The challenges and opportunities are discussed for such systems.
