A metamodel is a relatively simple model that approximates the behavior of one that is more complex.A common and superficially attractive way to develop a metamodel is to generate large-model data and use off-the-shelf statistical methods without attempting to understand the model's internal workings.This monograph describes research illuminating why it can be important to improve the quality of s......

Examines the potential of rule-based modeling as an analysis tool for investigating resource allocation policy issues.Focus is on resource allocation within B-52 flying organizations of the Strategic Air Command (SAC). A rule-based computer system, DOSS (Decision Oriented Scheduling System), is demonstrated to provide a valid model of many variables that affect resource allocation of aircrews and ......

It is an open question as to whether or not models, simulations, and games (MSGs) are being used by policymakers.On the one hand, it may be argued, these techniques are being used extensively:the quantity of activity is considerable.On the other hand, close inspection of much of this activity reveals a divergence of purpose between those who build and those who use MSGs having a policy-assisting i......

This Note describes how "exploratory modeling" provides a rationale for how computer models can be fruitfully employed in support of policy studies. The goal of exploratory modeling is to construct a compelling argument illuminating the choices among policy options. Three innovations in the methodology of model construction can help exploit exploratory modeling's potential: (1) model design driven......

It is commonly argued that an evolutionary approach to software system development based on prototyping can solve many of the problems of traditional development methods. In pursuing this approach, prototypes are often thought of as models, yet it is unclear exactly what they are modeling. This Note examines this question, inquiring into the nature of prototypes, systems, conceptual models, specif......

In the summer of 2002, the Office of Naval Research asked the Committee on Human Factors to hold a workshop on dynamic social network and analysis.The primary purpose of the workshop was to bring together scientists who represent a diversity of views and approaches to share their insights, commentary, and critiques on the developing body of social network analysis research and application.The seco......
