Introduction to WASP8

Interface
August 2016
Introduction
• Supports Multiple Operating Systems
• Windows 7/8/10 (64-Bit & 32-Bit)
• Mac OSX (Yosemite or Higher)
• Linux
• Graphical User Interface
• Complete Re-Design
• Stream Line Processes for building input file
• Implements Dynamic Allocation of Model State Variables
• Command Line Option
• Execute the model without the interface
• WASP Execution Supervisor
• Batch Runtime execution
