This paper presents guidelines for conducting verification, validation and accreditation (VV&A) of simulation models. Fifteen guiding principles are introduced to help the researchers, practitioners and managers better comprehend what VV&A is all about. The VV&A activities are described in the modeling and simulation life cycle. A taxonomy of more than 77 V&V techniques is provided to assist simulationists in selecting proper approaches for conventional simulation model V&V. Another taxonomy of
more » ... 38 V&V techniques is presented for object-oriented simulation models.
