Title: Method and apparatus for designing and analyzing information systems using multi-layer mathematical models

Abstract: An information design system uses an input module, a construction module, a performance metrics module, and an output module to create and output several models of a proposed information design system. The input module receives descriptive input which is validated and transformed into quantitative input. The construction module uses the quantitative input and information from a library of hardware and software component models to create and calibrate one or more models. The performance metrics module calculates performance metrics for the models, which then can be compared based on these metrics. A preferred information system design can then be selected from the models.
