Are you trying to learn how to model? There is no better way to get started than with WPI's "Introduction to System Dynamics", SS590. Learn the basics of Systems Thinking and then move on to the process of modeling real problems. This course gives you the tools you need to face that blank model page and more confidently develop a working model. Learn how accumulation and feedback modify the behavior of systems, become adept at using standard model formulations, and learn how to model intangibles, design graphical/table functions, and parameterize your model.
For prerequisite and degree requirements, this course can be used in place of SD550, which is not taught this fall. If you plan to take SD551 (Modeling and Experimental Analysis of Complex Problems) or SD556 (Strategic Modeling and Business Dynamics) in the spring, make sure to take SS590 this fall.
