This paper considers the characteristic dynamic behaviour associated with basic manufacturing system designs. In studying such systems the focus will be on three fundamental flows: orders; materials; and information. Of specific interest is the influence of these flows on scheduling decision...
System dynamics has a role to play in modelling the spread of infectious diseases. Its utility for this purpose is illustrated through a model of the spread of AIDS in the homosexual population of the UK. By virtue of its constituent diagramming tools, style of equation formulation and...
This paper considers how the precise world of mathematics is applied to fuzzy ambiguous real-life problems. System dynamics modelling for novice modellers is described, and a comparison made with mathematical modelling, using a simple physics problem as an example. The special place of time in...
In the past ten years, system dynamics has become more accessible to managers and more applicable to strategic issues. This paper reviews developments in software, theory, gaming and methods of simulation analysis that have brought about this change. Together, these developments allow modellers...
The purpose of this paper is to present a state-of-the-art survey of the subject of system dynamics. This will include a brief historical review and an outline of the methodology, which is increasingly being recognised as having two separate phases. These are the qualitative diagram...
