Abstract:
The highly important question of accuracy of model results is explored in this paper. Before a decision is made to proceed with a model study the decision maker should be cognizant of the accuracy which can reasonably be expected in a model study, and once the decision to proceed is made, the model enigneer should know of the techniques and procedures which will lead to useful dependable results.
