Data Initialization, Verification and Control
Aspects of the use of data
Data initialization, verification and control are important aspects of modeling applications. In general, verification of initialized data is required to check for input and consistency errors. When handling multiple data input sets, data control helps you to clean and maintain your internal data.
This chapter describes how AIMMS implements data initialization, as well
Assert mechanisms that you can use to verify the validity of
the data of your model. In addition, this chapter describes the data
control statements that you can use to maintain the data of your model
in good order. All explicit forms of data communication with text files,
cases and external databases are discussed in subsequent chapters.
