Model module libraries

Bundles of readyforwhatsnext modules are distributed as R libraries.

readyforwhatsnext model modules are intended to be both transferable (they are tools that can be used in multiple decision contexts) and modular (they are comprised of self-contained components, each of which performs a narrow sub-set of tasks). For these reasons, readyforwhatsnext model modules are developed and distributed as libraries of modules.

The three types of readyforwhatsnext module libraries are:

  • - modules for describing and quality assuring model data;

  • - modules to specify, assess and report statisitical models; and

  • - modules for making predictions.

A table summarising currently available readyforwhatsnext module libraries can be retrieved from an online repository by using the get_libraries_tb function from the ready4 framework library.

library(ready4)
libraries_tb <- get_libraries_tb() %>% update_libraries_tb(include_1L_chr = "modules")#make_libraries_tb("modules")

Module libraries are thematically grouped under one of four “sub-models” of readyforwhatsnext, one each for modelling People (collectively, the “Spring To Life” sub-model), Places (the “Springtides” sub-model), Platforms (collectively, the “First Bounce” sub-model) and Programs (the “On Target” sub-model). We can use the print_packages function to display the module libraries currently available for each section (currently, there are no publicly available libraries of readyforwhatsnext modules for modelling platforms).
