This thesis provides statistical analysis methods and a validation procedure for conducting
this statistical analysis, under the common random number (CRN)
correlation-induction strategy. The proposed statistical analysis provides estimates
for the unknown parameters that are needed for validating the model. While conducting
this statistical analysis, we make some key assumptions. Validation comprises
of a three-stage statistical procedure. The first stage tests for the multivariate
normality,the second stage tests the structure of the covariance matrix between
responses, and the third stage tests for the adequacy of the proposed model.
The statistical analysis and validation procedures are illustrated with an example of
a hospital simulation study.
