Introduction to the softwareΒΆ

Compartmental Modeling Software (CMS) is a stochastic compartmental model that is simpler to configure and faster to run than an agent-based model like EMOD, while more suitable to modeling low probability events than a deterministic compartmental model. CMS has multiple solvers and output formats available and uses a simple text-based model specification and simulation configuration.

CMS is provided to the research community to help advance the understanding of disease dynamics. IDM does not provide the same level of support for CMS as it does for EMOD; however, if you encounter any issues while using CMS, please contact and we will help if able.
