Abstract Verification and Validation of an Agent-based Simulation Model

By Nadine Shillingford, Gregory Madey and Ryan C. Kennedy


Verification and validation (V&V) are two important tasks that need to be done during software development. There are many suggestions in the literature for techniques that can be used during V&V. Some of these are varied and need to be adapted to the particular software product being developed. There are no defined V&V techniques that can be applied to agent-based simulations specifically. It is, therefore, left to the software team to develop a subset of V&V techniques that can be used to increase confidence in the simulation. This paper introduces a subset of techniques gathered from several authors and applies them to a computer simulation of natural organic matter
