Thesis subject

Test bed for Sensitivity Analysis of simulation models

Level: MSc

Research area/discipline: Software Engineering, Simulation Modelling

Prerequisites: Software Engineering (INF-32306) in combination with either Agent Based Modelling (INF-50806) or Decision Science II (ORL-30306)

Short description:

In a companion thesis project (see above), sensitivity analysis of simulation models is developed. When just one or two models have to analysed, it might be feasible to perform the necessary simulations in an ad hoc way. When similar procedures have to repeated over and over again, it is worthwhile to create software to control the complete process of sensitivity analysis.

This thesis project aims to define software to perform sensitivity analysis of simulation models automatically according to a structured protocol. The project also involves defining an programming interface between the analysis software and the models to be analysed.
