The purpose of this paper is to provide a state-of-the-art survey of credibility assessment of simulation results and suggest some future research directions. A hierarchy of the credibility assessment is introduced and the state-of-the-art survey is presented with respect to this hierarchy. A glossary is provided to alleviate the lack of standard terminology. The future research calls upon looking at the <q>global picture</q> when conducting a simulation study and being concerned with all of the eleven credibility assessment stages not just model validation and programmed model verification.
