This paper discusses validation and verification of simulation models. The different approaches to deciding model validity are presented; how model validation and verification relate to the model development process are discussed; various validation techniques are defined; conceptual model validity, model verification, operational validity, and data validity are described; ways to document results are given; and a recommended procedure is presented.
