Systematic Modeling of Multioperator Systems to Evaluate Design Concepts

  • Gerald P. Chubb
  • Constance M. Hoyland


Model development requires use of modeling tools. The use of any tool depends on skill in application. The product therefore depends on at least two factors, the quality of the tool and the skill of its user. When multiple users are needed to put the tools to work producing a final model, there is a further need to organize the model development and implementation process to facilitate communication, assure proper coordination of effort, and provide a basis for controlling and documenting what is done. This is especially important for large, multidisciplinary efforts.
