The Multi-Agent Simulation Suite
The Multi Agent Simulation Suite consists of three applications offering solutions for different aspects of modeling. Each of the applications is developed with the intention of providing professional tools for users without heavy programming skills. Unlike most other modeling tools our software offers user-friendly interfaces and handy wizards for writing models, creating visualizations or analyzing simulation data.
The Functional Agent-based Language for Simulation (FABLES) is an easy-to-use programming language and its integrated environment specially designed for creating agent-based simulations. It requires minimal programming skills, as it has a whole range of functions intended to make the use of the language easier.
The Participatory Extension (PET) is a web-based environment for creating, administrating and participating in agent-based and participatory simulations. The use of PET relies on mechanisms and practices users do every day while browsing web-pages on the internet.
The Model Exploration Module (MEME) is a tool that enables orchestrating experiments, managing results and has support for their analysis. It allows the user to run simulations in batches with various parameter settings, store, manage and analyze data thus produced.
