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

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 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
