MS-E2170 - Simulation - Spring 2017
Students will learn to identify, model and understand a variety of economic, organizational and socio-technical systems through simulation. After the course, students will recognize principles of systems thinking and are able to apply them to construct a system synamics simulation model for problem solving.
the course, we will discuss the analysis and control of dynamic system, model
building and validation. We will also go through the basics of Vensim-software
and present some practical system dynamics applications.
|Assessment methods and criteria|
Assignments and a project work. At each exercise session, a home assignment is given. The assignments are returned by next week's exercise. The project work is a simulation study conducted by a group of 1 to 3 students.
