Professor Jay W. Forrester 22.11.2016 Rene Reiter

Jay W. Forrester SM ’45, professor emeritus in the MIT Sloan School of Management, founder of the field of system dynamics, and a pioneer of digital computing, died Nov. 16. He was 98 (1). Forrester received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in 1939 from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, was inducted in 1949 into Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) the Electrical & Computer Engineering Honor Society, and went on to graduate school at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he would spend his entire career. During the 1940s and early 50s, he did research in electrical and computer engineering, heading the Whirlwind project, perfecting magnetic-core memory, and developing the "multi-coordinate digital information storage device" [...]

Paradigm-Free Modeling 02.11.2016 Rene Reiter

Are you just becoming familiar with Multimethod or Hybrid Modeling? A long-time AnyLogic software modeler, Dr. Benjamin Schumann from decisionLab would like to introduce you to the notion of “paradigm-free modeling”; modeling without the limitations of a specific language such as DE, SD or AB. Dr. Schumann elaborated on this concept in a recent blog post where he discussed the future of modeling, suggesting a new mentality is required for simulation modeling to become truly mainstream. Dr. Schumann came across the idea of paradigm-free modeling through Stefan Bengtsson, a very experienced modeler from Sweden who has represented multiple commercial and academic organizations. Some examples of his work: System Thinking and Simulation Presentation , Modeling Applications in Healthcare Video. [...]
