Comparative Analysis
As is often (always) the case, one is interested to see outcomes
under different scenarios.
Two ways to conduct comparative analysis
 Use multiple GAMS submissions or multiple solves
generating report writing output and then manually
comparing the analysis results
 Use the GAMS LOOP procedure and set up a comparative
scenario analysis system that creates cross scenario
comparison tables
What if one has a RAP (risk aversion parameter) of “1.5” or “5.0”?
Multiple GAMS Submissions
Report writing commands use values from the most recent

Loop: Structural Modification
Increasing run efficiency using the Save and Restart procedure.
We can associate a set of execution time parameters with a file
Save work files: s = .\t\a1
Restart work files: r = .\t\a1
