Workshops at System Dynamics Society conference

Mindseye Computing will hold several Powersim Studio workshops during the Conference. 


 

 

Workshop related to Powersim Studio at SD Conference

We are very proud to announce that Leonard Malczynski and Jake Jacobsen from Mindseye Computing will hold four different workshops during the 2021 International System Dynamics Conference. One of the workshops are held twice; on two different dates and times, allowing you to tune into the one most suitable for you. Still time to register!

 

Thursday July 29

Starting from scratch: Better model construction

20:00-21:30 This workshop will be an introduction to model construction. This is not formulation, group model building, or testing. This is all about the process of using system dynamics software tools to create well built and robust simulations. We will examine the quality of model construction, personal processes that will improve modeling skill, and criteria for checking the 'well built' attribute of system dynamics models. The workshop is intended for people who are relatively new to the field, have encountered models that can't be understood, or do not have considerable modeling experience. Sample models will be available. A best practices document can be downloaded at: The Powersim Studio Best Practice manual.

Feedback rich model construction with Powersim Studio

20:00-21:30

This workshop will be an introduction to building system dynamics models using Powersim Studio. The workshop is intended for people who are relatively new to the field or do not have experience using Studio. The session will be conducted as a hands-on workshop and will demonstrate basic techniques for building and analyzing, stock and flow diagrams and simple simulation models. It will also point out some of the advanced Studio features such as arrays, user interface tools, VB scripting, and the powerful Studio interactive development environment (IDE). Sample models will be available. A free version of Studio Express with no expiration can be obtained below. In addition Studio Demo is a free 30 day license with complete functionality can be downloaded below.

Tip: Remember DO NOT INSTALL this 30 day verson more than 30 days before the workshop!

08:00-09:30

Feedback rich model construction with Powersim Studio, in Live-Repeat.

Friday July 30

Optimization, sensitivity, and user defined functions in Powersim Studio

10:00-11:30 This workshop is an introduction to the optimization, sensitivity, and user defined function capabilities of Powersim Studio. Studio. The workshop is intended for people who have used Studio or are just curious. The session will be conducted as a hands-on workshop and will demonstrate modeling practices that permit optimization and sensitivity analysis. We will also look at careful use of user defined functions in VBScript with some examples. User defined functions are ideal for data manipulation, adding algorithms, etc. Sample models will be available.
Friday July 30

Building applications or flight simulators in Powersim Studio

18:00-19:30 This workshop is an introduction to building system dynamics model interfaces, i.e., applications or flight simulators using Powersim Studio. The workshop is intended for people who have gone beyond academic or research modeling with system dynamics and are producing applications for use over time for many users. We will look at the interface tools that come with Studio and the novel and creative ways they can be used to construct sophisticated user interfaces. Examples include time and static graphs, bar charts, gauges, sliders, navigation, events, graphic objects, etc. and combining tools. A sample model (runs in free and commercial versions) will be provided, so no skill with Studio is required but this is recommended for Studio users. The session will be conducted as a hands-on workshop and will demonstrate basic interface techniques: layout, color, etc.
