Validating a process model

As a real-world use case, we describe a production automation system and use a prototype implementation of the proposed Sb PV approach to link the real engineering process information with the designed process model.

In either case, you need to know what validation means for you, your customers, and your suppliers.

A client recently wrote: "We are seeking validated information proving that a change in manufacturing procedure will provide a product that is equal to or superior to that supplied previously.

Such an effort is commonly accomplished with specialized statistical computer programs designed for just such purposes. Verifying a calibrated model in this manner is commonly called "validation." The validation process establishes the credibility of the model by demonstrating its ability to replicate actual traffic patterns. The next step is to compare traffic estimated by the models to traffic counts, including transit ridership, crossing contrived barriers in the study area. Transit ridership estimates are commonly validated by comparing them to actual patronage crossing cordon lines around the central business district.

Validating the models requires comparing traffic estimated by the model to observed traffic on the roadway and transit systems. These are commonly called screenlines, cutlines, and cordon lines and may be imaginary or actual physical barriers.

We know that the benefits of the proposed change are significant with respect to component cost reduction and labor saved.

However, we are poorly equipped to offer evidence acceptable to the customer."If some essential properties or characteristics change during service time, possibly because of intervening deterioration processes, you should be able to determine the consequences for both the original and the modified product.

published in 1992 by the Institute of Transportation Engineers (p. (p.116) The process of developing travel models is commonly called "calibration." Given the basic form of a travel forecasting model, such as a gravity model or a logit model, calibration involves estimating the values of various constants and parameters in the model structure.
