This is an old revision of the document!
The documentation is structured as follows. Sections What is CAPRI-CAPRI uses the GAMS software give an overview of CAPRI system and its main software, GAMS. Section 1.4 informs about the CAPRI network. Sections 1.5 and 1.6 describe historical development of the model and more recent examples of CAPRI studies. Chapter “Getting started with CAPRI” provides with system requirements and the main installation instructions.
The rest of the document largely follows the workflow of the model: the different steps of building up the national, regional and global data base provide the foundations on which the system rests (Chapter "The CAPRI Data Base"). Subsequently the procedure needed to establish a baseline (Chapter “Baseline Generation”) is discussed. Chapter “Scenario simulation” deals with the scenario impact analysis, giving descriptions for the regional supply models as well as for the global market model and their interactions in scenario runs. Chapter “Post model analysis” covers some elements of post model analysis, whereas Chapter “Spatial dis-aggregation: CAPDIS module” covers options for spatial downscaling of the NUTS2 results. At the very end (Chapter “Stability testing tools for model tasks”), some developer tools for stability analysis are described.
