Camera Inside an Agent – Possible Problems

Placing a Camera on an Agent The Importance of 3D Animations We all know what 3D animation is, but little is said about how useful it is for the modeler and the stakeholders. An animation can act as a tool for the modeler to correct errors during the development phase, giving access to things that are not […]



Is System Dynamics Dead or Alive?

I was recently asked if System Dynamics (SD) is dead. And this is in fact an interesting question. In the industry, the use of discrete-events (DE) and agent-based (AB) models vastly surpasses the contribution of SD. And SD seems to be in an eternal struggle to get more popular and it doesn’t seem get enough traction, at[…]



Agent-Based, Discrete-Events and System Dynamics

Before I start, don’t expect me to explain all these methodologies in detail since there is already a lot of material on the web that can help you. Wikipedia is good starting point with the following links if you are interested in the technical details: System Dynamics Discrete Events Agent-Based In business, industrial and socio-economic settings, System[…]
