The problem of validating a complex simulation model represents pipeline terminal performance with verifiable accuracy is a difficult problem requiring extensive testing and calibration.

This paper discusses a case study of the verification and validation of a terminal simulation model. The approach to deciding model validity is presented as well as the process of verifying and validating the model including methodology and thresholds for acceptance. Ultimately the paper demonstrates the ability of commercial simulation and optimization software to work collaboratively to determine an optimal business solution.
