Which conjunciton should be used in this sentence?

"As the celebrated dictum says: “All models are wrong, but some models are useful.” IN THIS CASE, the steps outlined above are sure to produce a very useful model. "

I want to express I can still produce a useful model although it may be wrong.

What conjunction should I use to replace "in this case“. I think it is not very suitable here.

    If you wish to convey confidence in your outcome, you could say 'certainly'. If the question is open, but you think it likely, 'surely'.

    However, the dictum says a useful model is not a certain /sure outcome. You might say ' hopefully the steps outlined will produce a useful model ' (only the word sure)
