This month we are going to discuss the Cincom® ObjectStudio® Model Editor. The Model Editor should not be confused with the Modeling Tool. The Model Editor helps you to develop a calculation model that you can use in your application afterwards.

You can always develop such a model in plain Smalltalk, but the Model Editor helps you to prototype the model and gives you a graphical preview of it. In the late 1980’s, a Dutch company used the Model Editor extensively to create a tactical battlefield command and control system to render all kinds of tactical maps.
