Abstract : In any form of scientific research or decision making, it is desirable to draw upon all relevant data which is available. Unfortunately, data derived from different sources often takes on forms which are incompatible. Consequently, much of the information not used and is thereby effectively 'lost.' Simulation users frequently find themselves in this situation when observations have been obtained from a computer model and from the corresponding real-world situation it simulates. Although the real-world observations comprise the most valid of the two data sets, the other set may also contain useful information. (Author)
