Structure

On this screen, the user will define the model structure. The structure is comprised of node type, node names, and the flow for the sequence of nodes.

Left hand pane -> Markdown editor

To build a model, the user will document the types of nodes and node names on the Markdown Editor pane.

Each node type needs a [Section Header] defined by brackets [ ].

The following is a list of the node types:

Nodes can be defined by either of the following:

Example 1: Name Example 2: Description Example 3: Name and Description

b1

Buffer1

b1: Buffer 1

Node Name and Description are alphanumeric and can contain most symbols. There is a naming restriction on containing spaces. The only place where a space is allowed is in Description in Example 3, where we define both a name and description.

[Links] define the flow or sequence of material/processing step using -> to separate nodes. We prefer approach shown in example 3 due to it's simplicity in the links.

For example - consider a model with a simple buffer-constraint-buffer setup. The link structure would be as follows:

Example 1: Name Example 2: Description Example 3: Name and Description

[Links]

b1 -> c1

c1 -> b2

[Links]

Buffer1-> Constraint1

Constraint1 -> Buffer

[Links]

b1 -> c1

c1 -> b2

Right hand pane -> Node View

The model structure will appear on the right hand pane when the model is defined in the editor pane.
