The Epitools currently implemented range from a farm data updating module, through model parameter estimation modules, to modules that can be used to predict epidemic outcome and/or provide spatial risk mappings.
Due to the need to adapt modules for specific (new) purposes, the computer codes need to be made more robust against certain relevant model adaptations. Moreover, as the analyses performed in the individual Epitools are often linked, this robustness issue extends across all Epitools and their interconnected operability. Therefore, the goal of this project is the integration of the different models (modules) in a robust way: a framework will be constructed (and implemented) in which different variants of a model can be used in an integrated manner, such that a modified model can function within the sequence of Epitools/modules without the need of changing the other modules.
