Abstract:

An important element of most models, simulations, or games is the scenario, which delineates the modelers conception of whatever he is attempting to represent. The report focuses upon the designing of scenarios for the politicalmilitary, free-form games, but the underlying assumptions regarding the function of scenarios will be shown to apply to a wide range of modeling exercises. The report considers such issues as the models frame of reference, bounding the model, the role of theory, and data considerations. The credibility of the model and its sensitivity testing are also addressed.
