Supporting Large Scale Parameter Sweeps

Modelon Impact’s new micro-service architecture enables users to distribute compilation and simulation jobs on a cluster – executing larger simulations faster. Users will benefit from:

  • Creating experiments – define the sequence, manage experiments, and save back to the model.
  • Filter results – filter with a view or text pattern to control the size of the result.





Modelon Impact API Access Support

Users can now connect and programmatically interact with Modelon Impact using the Python Client Library. By installing the Modelon Impact Python package users can create and automate custom workflows.
