Introduction to Modeling Process
August 18 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT
In this seminar, you will be able to build your very first System Dynamics model! This will be a small, quantitative model of Romeo and Juliet’s love for each other.
You will also make your first steps with Vensim software and learn how to apply it for very basic quantitative modeling. If you wish to use another software, you are equally welcome to join. We will also put a great focus on the System Dynamics modelling process and how we think about policy interventions in System Dynamics. Thus, this seminar is not just a presentation. It includes hands on modeling, and some interaction.
This seminar is sponsored by Ventana Systems, the developers of Vensim Simulation Software. Due to their generous sponsorship, this seminar will be open to the public and free of charge. Ventana Systems will also supply attendees with a temporary license for a limited version of their software so that they can follow along in this interactive workshop.
