In the scheme of an integrated decision support system, model management holds a position comparable with data management. Unfortunately, the development and formalizing of model management techniques historically have lagged far behind data management concepts, although the increased interest in spreadsheets has rekindled an interest in models as productivity enhancing tools. Model management systems offer one way of integrating models into the overall structure of an organizational information resource library. This thesis proposes the design and implementation of a visual interface to one such model management system, based on A.M. Geoffrion's structured modeling paradigm. Our goal is to provide the user with a natural, easy-to-use interface that is, at the same time, powerful enough to extract the full potential from a model management system. Keywords: Visual interface; Model management system; Structured modeling; Human factors; Graphics interface; Man computer interface; Man machine systems. (sdw)
