Abstract:

This document is intended to guide the decisionmaker in the difficult task of determining how much confidence to place in a models results. A model which is a representation of either a real or proposed process or system can be used as an aid to assist evaluators and analysts in supporting decisionmakers. Thus, models can allow analysts and decisionmakers to anticipate the implications of various policies on particular issues or systems when such implications are not readily susceptible to analysis with other tools.
