SimDesign: Structure for Organizing Monte Carlo Simulation Designs

Provides tools to help safely and efficiently organize Monte Carlo simulations in R. The package controls the structure and back-end of Monte Carlo simulations by utilizing a general generate-analyse-summarise strategy. The functions provided control common simulation issues such as re-simulating non-convergent results, support parallel back-end and MPI distributed computations, save and restore temporary files, aggregate results across independent nodes, and provide native support for debugging. For a pedagogical introduction to the package refer to Sigal and Chalmers (2016) <doi:10.1080/10691898.2016.1246953>, and for an in-depth overview of the package and its design philosophy see Chalmers and Adkins (2020) <doi:10.20982/tqmp.16.4.p248>.
