This paper, firstly, describes the current status of the utilization of traffic simulation models. Evaluation for the model's application in Japan was based on a questionnaire survey. Secondly, the Best Practice Manual for Simulation Application, which is currently being developed, is discussed. In addition some exerts from the manual in regards to addressing the issues of simulation application are presented: i.e. i) understanding the models' nature through verification and validation; ii) OD estimation from vehicle counts; iii) model parameter calibration; and iv) indices to measure the reproducibility. Finally this paper introduces the Clearing House of Traffic Simulation Models. These models promote simulation utilization.
