Description

Use and misuse of simulation models, model documentation, model comparisons and model integration are topics that never vanished from discussion on modelling and simulation. Especially under the frame of collaborative modelling these issues again gain importance. This contribution to the discussion does not offer another technological approach for this task. Here, the focus is put on documenting and assessing models and by this supporting the part of (re-) application of models. Using the metaphor of a collapsible picture book with which modellers, practitioners, stakeholders and other can access regions, models and modelling questions. The approach is suitable for scientific groups, projects or even journals for storing and maintaining their knowledge accumulated through simulation models.

Promoting access to and reuse of modelling projects - A picture book approach

Use and misuse of simulation models, model documentation, model comparisons and model integration are topics that never vanished from discussion on modelling and simulation. Especially under the frame of collaborative modelling these issues again gain importance. This contribution to the discussion does not offer another technological approach for this task. Here, the focus is put on documenting and assessing models and by this supporting the part of (re-) application of models. Using the metaphor of a collapsible picture book with which modellers, practitioners, stakeholders and other can access regions, models and modelling questions.
