While agent-based models (ABM) are increasingly used to study overall system behaviour of various systems, they can also be hard to use by people and organisations that are not familiar with this modelling paradigm. Creating usable agent-based models is thus an important aspect to consider while constructing agent-based models. However, an ABM...
