1. A data preprocessor for preprocessing input data prior to input to a system model having multiple inputs, each of the inputs associated with a portion of the input data, comprising:

  • an input buffer for receiving and storing the input data, the input data associated with at least two of the inputs being on different time scales relative to each other;

    a time merge device for selecting a predetermined time scale and reconciling the input data stored in the input buffer such that all of the input data for all of the inputs is on the same time scale; and

    an output device for outputting the data reconciled by the time merge device as reconciled data, said reconciled data comprising the input data to the system model.
