R project plugin for model execution released

It is now possible to load, parameterize, execute and interrogate a previously saved Simile model within an R language script.
The interface package for doing so is available via The Comprehensive R Archive Network ( by the name Simile. Current version is 1.1. It is compatible with all Simile platforms, and requires Simile version 5.8 or later.
R is a scripting language especially designed for statistical manipulation of data. It is open-source, freely available and widely used. The Simile model interface is just one of thousands of available extension packages for R.
To use a model via the R interface, a compiled binary executable for the model must be created. This is only possible when using Simile's Enterprise edition. If you wish to create an executable for your model in order to evaluate the R interface, please send the model to and state what platform you will be using for R execution.
The R interface includes full documentation in the normal R style, and an example that plots data from a Simile model on the R plotter tool.

Could this connection be used for uncertainty analysis using the restart fuction and collecting the data from each run?

 Yes, that would be possible.

The manual for the R package (and the package) can be found on CRAN
