Summary:
This book presents a fresh, new approach to systems analysis and modeling with a systems science flavor that stimulates systems thinking. After introducing systems modeling principles, the ensuing wide selection of examples aptly illustrate that anything which changes over time can be modeled as a system. Each example begins with a knowledge base that displays relevant information obtained from systems analysis. The  Read more...

After introducing systems modeling principles, the ensuing wide selection of examples aptly illustrate that anything which changes over time can be modeled as a system. Each example begins with a knowledge base that displays relevant information obtained from systems analysis. The diversity of examples clearly establishes a new protocol for synthesizing systems models. * Macro-to-micro, top-down approach * Multidisciplinary examples * Incorporation of human knowledge to synthesise a systems model * Clear and concise systems delimitation * Complex systems using simple mathematics * "Exact" reproduction of historical data plus model generated secondary data * Systems simulation via systems models."@en ;
