A steady state happens when all the influxes and fluxes of the pools and variables in a system are in balance, i.e. none of the variables change in number, amount, or concentration.
Design problems are common in biotechnology where one normally seeks to maximize a flux, a yield, or the concentration of an interesting product.
To compare model results with the experimental data, one first has to simulate the mathematical model, which we label the forward problem.
