WEST – DIMS.CORE bridge
DIMS.CORE and WEST can be seamlessly integrated based on COM or OPC DataLink technology, e.g. allowing for Model Predictive Control setups.

Integrated MS Excel-compatible workbook
A workbook is included by default in any project, editable inside WEST, and allowing for easily mapping workbook cells to parameters and variables, in both directions.

Enhanced structured editor for top-level parameters and variables
Additional ways for handling the complexity of top-level parameter and interface variable couplings, and for specifying custom top-level computations are provided through an enhanced structured editor.
