for Simulation of Industrial Management Problems with Lots of Equations.

Richard Bennett, MIT, 1958.

Predecessor to DYNAMO, for IBM 704.

"The history of DYNAMO begins with a program called SIMPLE (Simulation of Industrial Management Problems with Lots of Equations), written by Richard K. Bennett in the spring of 1958 for the IBM 704 Computer.  SIMPLE contained most of the basic features of DYNAMO, including the plotting routine (written by Edward B. Roberts); but the model specifications had to be stated in a rather primitive form, and very few checks were performed on these specifications."
