Re: Review of summary document providing Committee overview

Definition for "multiscale model." Lealem, this is interesting. In my academic upbringing, one rule is to keep an M&S at one level of detail; that is, do not have one part of an M&S a one level of detail and another part of an M&S at a different level of detail. In practice, of course, that is more...

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

To understand what we mean by credibility of a model We need to be specific about what we are assessing the Credibility of: The Practice of Modeling & Simulation The Model The Simulation The Analysis The Results Perhaps one place to start is looking at NASA’s Standard for Models & Simulations, whic...

Re: Review of summary document providing Committee overview

Jacob, This comment assumes the new version of the Summary Document has not been completed. Chart 4 – “Modeling” is an activity, not a “thing” The first words in the definition “specifically computational modeling” are fine as setting the context. The way the rest of the definition reads “virtual re...

Re: Definitions: Building a Glossary

I have a list of terms and definitions for terms to consider, but before our list of terms becomes too long, I’d like to propose the following: We may want to keep a list of just terms to peruse with links to the definition discussion for that term. Definitions should be parsimonious, i.e., as short...

Can we get this document to assist/inform our purpose?

It would be helpful to see a definition for this term.

Re: Review of summary document providing Committee overview

Open Communication So, how does one communicate openly about an M&S? How does one communicate credibility of practice in M&S? (I've addressed this previously) Should this Committee: - Institute methods for more completely communicating the credibility of an M&S Practice? - Develop a set of expectat...

Re: Review of summary document providing Committee overview

Regarding Jacob's & Ahmet's Discourse: Any model, physical (person or manikin) or computational , will be assessed for credibility, either explicitly or implicitly. The criteria for credibility assessment may be somewhat different between physical & computational models. To be credible is to be bel...

Re: Review of summary document providing Committee overview

Jacob, in-silico investigations for potential therapeutics Lealem "in-silico"? This is the 1st time I'm exposed to this word - makes me think we're growing something in a petri dish with a silicon base (ever here of a Horta?) To be technically accurate, I'd want to avoid this term, which means it w...

Re: Review of summary document providing Committee overview

All : One of the things I’m finding interesting is the terminology this community is using. In several of my latest efforts, I’ve found the compilation/creation of a domain glossary/lexicon very important, and if it’s not done sooner, we’ll discover later that we should have done it sooner. Perhaps...
