Phase 5

Simulation and visualization (phase 5): Formal policy models are the starting point for running simulations of the policy case (phase 5). In this step, experts of policy modelling instantiate simulation models with particular variables and run the simulations. The results received from such simulations are visualised in a text format (i.e. a model-based scenario) and supportive charts. Visualisation is needed to demonstrate how a strongly connected operation works, and which results are generated and derivable from current scenario descriptions. Visualisation is essential to provide simulation results to users and analysts as well as to receive feedback and support interaction with those stakeholders.
