Abstract: In this paper, basic steps in the probabilistic calibration of design methods are identified.
These include identification and evaluation of test data; comparison of design models with test data; evaluation of safety in the context of an overall design approach; and final development of code language. Challenges to the success of each step are described, and means of overcoming those challenges are suggested. Finally, calibration is shown to be an ongoing process, one of whose benefits is to suggest areas in which additional research would be particularly cost-effective.
