Abstract:

It is true that there are a vast number of techniques that can be used in computer simulation. For validation, each of these requires its own individual method of verification. The compounding of these techniques makes verification of the total simulation often approach the impossible. However, this does not eliminate simulation as a very valuable methodology for performing systems analysis. The report presents an example of a simulation that can be shown to produce accurate results by verifying its output in two stages. First an analytic solution is derived for a constrained version of the simulation. Then that portion of the simulation that had to be eliminated in order to test the analytic solution is tested separately. By inference, this method of verification can be used on much more complicated simulation models by subdividing them into simpler models each of which can be verified independently.
