Title: The Environmental Investments; an example of a modular design

 

Authors: Robbert Renssen and Tom Guldemond

 

Abstract: In order to reduce costs one might consider to design and implement statistical production lines in a modular way. This is one of the drivers of the development of GSIM (Generic Statistical Information Model). GSIM should enable modular ways of producing statistics. Last year, we actually designed and implemented one of our statistics according to such an approach. This presentation gives some results. Among others, it shows to what extent the modular approach has been cost-effective.
