The term 'simulation model reuse' can be taken to mean various things from the reuse of small portions of code, through component reuse, to the reuse of complete models. On a more abstract level, component design, model design and modelling knowledge are prime candidates for reuse. The reuse of simulation models is especially appealing, based on the intuitive argument that it should reduce the time and cost for model development. In a discussion with four simulation modelling experts, however, a number of issues were raised that mean these benefits may not be obtainable. These issues include the motivation to develop reusable models, the validity and credibility of models to be reused, and the cost and time for familiarisation. An alternative simulation methodology was proposed, that may lend itself better to model reuse. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
