A primary driver for developing MUSICX was to support the integration of MUSIC functionality with eWater Source (including the Urban Developer Plugin) to allow for a holistic assessment of water quality and quantity water, giving water modellers and managers the tools to design truly integrated water management solutions.
MUSIC and Urban Developer were designed to complement each other and were able to draw together information on water quantity (Urban Developer) and water quality (MUSIC) to develop IWRM solutions in urban areas. These models can now be linked to Source catchment and river system models. Giving water managers tools to explore possible interactions and to identify and test IWRM options across catchment and local scales, with a range of land-uses.
Users can customise MUSICX by creating plugins. Plugins can currently be created to for data processing, input sets, exporting and reporting functions.
