Minimum or Maximum package for SI Worst Case simulation?

Dear SI experts,

When doing the worst case simulation of signal integrated for a design,
how shall I use the IBIS models? Here, the worst case means the maximum
amount for overshoot, undershoot and ringback.

I know that I shall use the IBIS models with Max V-I table and Minimum

I am not sure if use minimum package(R,L,C) or maximum package(R,L,C)

One article says the minimum package information shall be used to do the
worst case analysis. (the article is on
<> )

Can somebody explain why?
