o Sensitivity analysis to test robustness.
- Analyze the model output and the related components (if applicable);
- Model assumptions and limitations validity;
- Results of benchmarking and sensitivity analysis;
- Accuracy of model’s characteristics;(ROC/AUC, KS statistics, accuracy ratio, Gini coefficient etc)
- Monitor over time in order to follow up trends and detect deviations;
- Establish thresholds and action plan for major deviations;
- Report this analysis to the different model stakeholders.
