Re: Survey Design

The survey design is on the wiki and can be accessed through this URL: http://wiki.simtk.org/cpms/Ten_Simple_Rules_of_Credible_Practice/Survey_Design Jacob, I'm intentionally keeping this short (for the moment): Why do you want to normalize the responses of each modeler? What justifies that? The ra...

Re: Ten simple rules of credible practice

[*] Make sure your results are reproducible (although I like Tony’s refinement here better as well: Make it easy for anyone to repeat and/or falsify your results – so this encompasses writing readable code, sharing the code and data, etc.)[/list] This wording in the "Top Ten Ranked" does not read w...

Re: Ten Simple Rules – Practice Standard and Guidelines team

I started out this task without looking at anyone’s input. Keeping this list to 10 “simple” rules is quite difficult for such an involved and complex subject. The idea behind these rules is that any M&S practitioner who follows them will produce more credible results. The following items in the orig...

Re: New Simtk.org forums * Feedback and support thread *

Can I format a post as a Table?
If so, how?

I've tried BBCode for tables, but it does not work.

Re: Link between credibility and statements of model uses

discussion of a model’s credibility is having clear practical (application focused) and technical text stating commitments covering uses envisioned by the model’s engineers. ... quality of the use cases. This discussion is what the more general M&S community refers to as defining & documenting the ...

Re: Credibility assessment: Is it a well posed problem?

The space of model types and model uses within healthcare is too large to make such an exercise (by this Committee) productive. The ‘space of model uses’ will likely be quite large, but the ‘space of model types’ may not be if we keep it at a high enough level. Understanding model type will immedia...

Re: Review of summary document providing Committee overview

Re: Voting on changes It's hard to keep track of these various changes as posted in the Forum. I agree with Tony on this. After awhile, interlaced Forum postings are difficult to track/trace and can lose their context. An updated draft document of its current state will be quite beneficial. Is ther...

Re: Definitions: Building a Glossary

DoD glossary While I agree that we should not duplicate efforts of good work already accomplished, we also should not just take a particular venue's (e.g., DoD's) definition as it is. The DoD's glossary in particular has nuances that are particular to the military (e.g., commander focused) and they...

Re: Definitions: Building a Glossary

Hi All, Based on the previous replies, I would need some clarification. Do you think it is necessary to establish individual entries for combined phrases, e.g. intended use, context of use, multiscale modeling? Shouldn't it be adequate if we provide definitions, for the listed phrases for example, ...
