The validation approach typically includes:

  • Review of input data including definition of units of measure
  • Review of all modeling steps, assumptions, and techniques used
  • Review of model robustness and consistency of results over time
  • Assessment of regulatory compliance in target jurisdictions
  • Validation of model code and outputs
  • Comparison with best practice approach
  • Recommendations for model improvements
