Statistics about the manpower involved in ALADIN are regularly produced thanks to the ALADIN work accounting realized by the LTM (ALADIN correspondents) following the rules defined in the MoU.

The updated statistics are presented every year at the General Assembly (the corresponding charts may be found in the General Assembly pages).

 Type of work at the end of June 2013

  • Since July 2001, the ALADIN effort is split in 3 categories (direct work, maintenance of local applications, development of interfaces to other applications). The type of work is also characterized (training, tuition, networking,maintenance, validation, development, operational).
  • Since January 2007, the manpower is also split in "in-kind" or "not in-kind" work.
  • Since January 2012, as proposed during the 16th GA, a special attention is paid to the following activities in the reporting (first statistics were computed after 6 months record): Parallellization/optimization (openMP, MPI issues, for instance removal for global variables in SURFEX);
    Code development (e.g. writing code for new science);
    Code design (e.g. OOPS, work on interfaces, (re)design of the logical switches, reorganization e.g. full pos);
    Code maintenance (e.g. phasing, local porting).
