Models of dynamic systems are often constructed to improve system performance by identifying and modifying structures and parameters that drive system behavior. Once identified, these can be used to design and test policies for performance improvement. A preliminary step in developing policies is the identification of high leverage parameters and structures, the influential model sections that drive system behavior. The current work describes the use of statistical screening as a tool to… CONTINUE READING
