Implementation of DYNAMO for the Macintosh

System Dynamics

"Originally introduced on the Macintosh in 1984, the Stella software provided a graphically oriented front end for the development of system dynamics models. The stock and flow diagrams, used in the system dynamics literature are directly supported with a series of tools supporting model development. Equation writing is done through dialog boxes accessible from the stock and flow diagrams"

What is of interest are those applications that facilitate scientific thought and encourage problem solving. As a person begins to build theories and test them using the Stella program, system behavior can be viewed from a new frame of reference. This program truly gives us an exciting facility for questioning the way we view the world. This paper will focus on developing an understanding of how a simulation construction kit, like Stella, can be used to refine thinking.
