DIWAX (2005-present)
Outline:DIWAX is an agent-based software package designed to support macroeconomic forecasting based on national accounting schemes. Its main building blocks comprise a relational metadatabank for organizing data along standard economic and statistical classifications, a resource-based project management for downloading and importing data from many different sources (including output from macroeconometric models) and, most importantly, an analytic interface for analyzing data and designing forecasts within a user-defined framework. Software agents assist the forecasterís work in terms of performing routine work and checking the results for inconsistencies, irregularities or outdatedness.
