Abstract for: The Elements and Structure of a Group Model Building Case Study Database
System dynamics has been successfully used to tackle so-called messy problems. System dynamics group model building scripts describe detailed processes for involving stakeholders deeply in system dynamics modeling. Group model building scripts describe, among other things, the information required as input to each group model building process as well as information that will become the output of each group model building process. While many different input and output artifacts are described in detail, little attention has been paid to how a collection of such artifacts should be organized for optimal use. This paper describes the elements and structure of a possible system dynamics case study database.
