Sensitivity Analysis for simulation models

Level: MSc

Research area/discipline: Software Engineering, Simulation Modelling

Prerequisites: Programming in Python (INF-22306) and/or Software Engineering (INF-32306) and/or Agent Based Modelling (INF-50806) and/or Decision Science II (ORL-30306)

Short description:

In evaluating the quality of simulation models or experimental results, sensitivity analysis plays an important role. This means that one investigates the influence of model parameters on model outcomes in a systematic way.

In this thesis project, sensitivity analysis has to be performed on one or more simulation models (e.g. ABM or DES) or existing outcomes of such models. The project may also lead to a structured protocol for performing sensitivity analysis of future models.
