Units of Measurement

This chapter describes how to incorporate dimensional analysis into an AIMMS application. As will be explained, you can define quantities and their corresponding units, and associate these units with identifiers in your model. AIMMS automatically checks for unit consistency in all the constraints and assignment statements. In addition, AIMMS allows you to specify unit conventions. With this facility it is possible for end-users around the world to select their preferred convention, and view the model data in the units associated with that convention.
