Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Workflow Job Manager for NCCP
by Gibbs, Ivan, M.S., University of Nevada, Reno, 2012, 104; 1532258
Abstract (Summary)

Model coupling has been of interest for quite a while due to its promise of assisting massive amounts of reuse and thereby speeding up development cycles. A project at UNR dubbed the Nevada Climate Change Portal (NCCP) is currently being developed to assist in the coupling of scientific climate models. One part of this portal is being developed to enable users to define scientific workflows and then run them. It is in this particular functionality of the NCCP in which the topic of this thesis resides. This thesis is concerned with the creation of a web-service based workflow job manager to work in a different way than the typical job manager. Modern software packages such as .Net, Silverlight, WSDL, SOAP, and Graphviz are used to develop the features of this job manager. Aside from the gross technical details, the proposed job manager contains a way to represent the current progression status of a simulation in a graphical form, which it is hoped will allow the adaption of the GUI to a wider variety of platforms such as smart phones or tablet computers.
