Integrated environmental modeling approaches, especially the agent-based modeling one, are increasingly used in large-scale decision support systems. A major consequence of this trend is the manipulation and generation of huge amount of data in simulations, which must be efficiently managed. Furthermore, calibration and validation are also challenges for Agent-Based Modelling and Simulation (ABMS) approaches when the model has to work with integrated systems involving high volumes of input/output data. In this paper, we propose a calibration and validation approach for an agent-based model, using a Combination Framework of Business intelligence solution and Multi-agent platform (CFBM). The CFBM is a logical framework dedicated to the management of the input and output data in simulations, as well as the corresponding empirical datasets in an integrated way. The calibration and validation of Brown Plant Hopper Prediction model are presented and used throughout the paper as a case study to illustrate the way CFBM manages the data used and generated during the life-cycle of simulation and validation.
