Software and simulation packages are useful tools for the analysis of systems and solving problems by the students of Science, Social Science, Engineering, Management and related disciplines. Many commercial software packages are available for the above. But many of these software packages are quite costly and require yearly license fee for updates and maintenance. Many open source softwares are available which can perform similar functions but are not user friendly and do not have proper documentation. Beside these, adequate manpower to teach students to use these packages are not available.
The objective of this project is to develop software tools for analysis of systems and computations, create adequate manpower to teach students to use open source software and to develop simulation tools. The developed software should be user friendly and properly documented. Such packages, tailored to suit the needs of our students will be ported on Sakshat for making freely available to any student, teacher or institution willing to use them.
