DATAFORM is a model database manager and a data manipulation language. The language is rich enough to do most data processing for your modeling applications in addition to the specific model generation, solution control, and report writing that is expected. The versalitiy of DATAFORM makes it appropriate for application prototyping; its power and speed make it appropriate for production systems.
The MPSIII model database managed by DATAFORM holds all of the model data: data tables, matrices, and optimal solutions. This hierarchical, virtual file has proven to be an extremely efficient storage medium that strongly supports case management. Multiple scenarios are easily created and exploited.
