PROCEDURES AND STATISTICAL METHODOLOGY OF MODEL VALIDATION
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
Determining the effectiveness of a computer simulation model in duplicating a desired real world phenomenon is an important unsolved problem. The purpose of this paper is to model the validation procedure in a broad context and develop a general methodology for the statistical part of validation. A procedure calling on utility, decision, simulation, and statistical theories is developed. The goals of statistical testing are presented, and the assumptions, properties, and results of several parametric and nonparametric tests are discussed and compared.
