Requirements Analysis on Hypotheses in Simulation
The research gap identified in the previous section reflects an insufficient representation and consideration of research hypotheses in the process of simulation studies. This stands in contrast with the vision of this thesis of enabling and facilitating the methodologically sound and reproducible verification of research hypotheses on the behavior of simulation models. To overcome this gap, existing procedure models, which define the methodology of simulation studies, must be extended so that the entire life-cycle of a study is covered, from the formulation of hypotheses to their reliable and replicable answering.
