The capabilities and user-friendliness of simulation packages have contributed to the growth of continuous system simulation methods. This means that these tools are used increasingly by non-specialists and the risks of misuse are increasing. It is important to test a simulation program to establish that it is both an accurate implementation of the equations of the model (internal verification) and also accurately represents the real-world system that the model represents (external validation). This paper outlines the processes involved in addressing these two areas of testing for simulation models and gives emphasis to the type of computing environment required.
