However, there are several other categories of checking which are deferred, so that you can continue to work on your model, even though there may be outstanding problems to resolve. STEM automatically checks models before running them, but you may prefer to check your model periodically, to avoid having to confront a significant backlog of errors when you do come to run the model:
