What are the main benefits of MUSICX versus MUSIC 6.3.0?

MUSICX has been re-designed and re-written into modern software coding platform, maintaining all the capability of MUSIC V6.3 but gives users additional functionality and the benefits of modern software architecture.

In the present release, MUSICX allows you to combine your MUSIC models with eWater Source (and the new Source plugin - Urban Developer) to model both water quality and quantity.  A limitation is that MUSICX and Source will have to run at the same time step. We are working on providing a solution where the three models will be able to run at different times steps, appropriate to the scale of the different tools. This will ultimately give  you the tools to design truly integrated water resource management solutions.  

The new coding platform brings the ability to customize your MUSICX models by developing plugins. Plugins can be written for a wide range of purposes, including to incorporate or test new treatment options, add new contaminants, recognize local features, such as soil type and hydrology or to include new science. Compatibility with the Source platform also allows you to access Source plugins, such as additional Rainfall-Runoff models.

MUSICX also brings the benefits of:

·        Improved Graphic User Interface for easy data input, tabular input/output, group edit and advanced graphics.

·        Function Manager to support more complex model building.

·        Powerful in-built Results Manager for data analysis and results interpretation.
