Abstract : The purpose of this research is to (1) prepare an assessment of the effectiveness of peer reviews as they have evolved over the past few years for verification and validation (V and V) of large scale military models, and (2) develop a framework for the accreditation process. The military makes extensive use of highly complex simulation models for a variety of purposes. Major uses include: (1) Battle planning; (2) Wartime operations; (3) Weapons procurement; (4) Force sizing; (5) Human resource planning; (6) Logistics planning; and (7) National policy analysis.
