Panel Session: Model Component Standardization and Certification
Componentization has proven to be a powerful paradigm in complex system design. It allows a system to be decomposed into components with well-defined interfaces and behavior without exposing the details of how the behavior is achieved. Extensive catalogues of hardware components such as electrical motors, hydraulic pumps, and operational amplifiers exist, where data sheets relay specific characteristic behavior of the components with a given accuracy.
- Benchmark models
- Modeling standards
- Model assumptions
- Funding options
- Liability issues
- How to submit a model?
- How to request a standardization?
- How to disseminate?
- Previous efforts, success stories
- Multi-resolution modeling, managing levels of abstraction
- Explicate the needs to enable a business paradigm where computational models are provided by suppliers, rather than hardware components.
- Identify the aspects involved in establishing an international advisory board to provide an accredited library of components for standardization and to certify benchmark computational models.
- Provide a forum for further exchange of information on:
- The availability and accessibility of the library and copyright issues.
- Establishing test suites to achieve coverage of model functionality.
