Using a 3-phase approach, we illustrate how to create a scenario that can be used in the Network Science Research Laboratory NSRL for experimental research purposes. In the first phase Planning, the overall design of the scenario is formed in the second phase Execution, methods for realizing the design plan are discussed, and in the final phase Visualization, tools and methods for visualizing and running the scenario are outlined. Although this report does not go into the full length of the work it takes to implement every permutation possible within each phase, examples are given of existing code that has been used in NSRL in order to create working scenarios. Through the use of the tools and methods outlined in this report, scenarios can be developed for experimenting research areas in network science.
