Modeling Dynamic Systems Section 10
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  There are several characteristics of complex systems that can be discussed with students during these lessons. The fictitious city seems to face a dilemma; the tanning industry provides needed jobs in the present, but water pollution can cause serious det

Modeling Dynamic Systems Section 6
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  In the classroom example provided in this section, the author lists many "potential systems problems" that are related to the issue of overpopulation. As an extension exercise, students can be asked to identify ways in which people have attempted to solve

Modeling Dynamic Systems Section 7
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  The dynamics of epidemics can be used to impart an intuitive understanding of what it means to say a policy has "high leverage." Students can be tasked with conducting policy analysis to determine the leverage points in preventing an infectious illness fr

Modeling Dynamic Systems Section 8
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  Policy analysis gives students an opportunity to learn first-hand that complex systems are rich in feedback. They will experience the frustration of implementing well-meaning interventions, only to have them defeated by the feedback mechanisms of the syst

Modeling Dynamic Systems Section 9
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  Supply chain dynamics are useful for illustrating the complex system characteristic that cause and effect are often separated by both time and space. Supply chains are often global, with decisions taken today causing impacts into the future and across nat
