Diagnostic tests in step 1 may not have as much power in this direction. Thus, the system approach implicit in step 2 should remain a part of our diagnostics for model validation. However, since deterministic simulations are biased, even asymptotically, we would then recommend using stochastic simulations as the basis of our diagnostics. After this correction of step 2, instead of relying on descriptive statistics alone, we would proceed to develop significance tests which are based, generally, on the limiting distribution of appropriate test statistics.
