This module provides some pointers towards becoming both a good consumer and producer of simulation models.

Learning Objectives

  • Know the different considerations to take into account when building and using model.
  • Be able to critically assess the quality of models and model results reported in the literature.


We probably won’t have time to discuss this topic in one of the zoom sessions. Therefore, there are no slides.


The other units in this module contain information on both the building and assessing components of papers that use simulation models.

Further materials
