Sustainability Model (Excerpt from the IAM model) von Kai Neumann

English version of the model from the book ( http://www.amazon.com/KNOW-WHY-Systems-Thinking-Modeling/dp/384821430X/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=135797... ) and the basis for an UBA (federal environmental agency Germany) project model: https://www.know-why.net/model/AT8roK0_fQCHRRrtwhp_1-w  It is a mere qualitative model with a high level of abstraction and aggregation. It includes: - sustainable and conventional consumption - sustainable and conventional economy - consumer's behavior (according to KNOW WHY Th...

System Archetypes von Franc Grimm

Here we would like to explain different system archetypes, which are describing common patterns of behavior in all kind of organizations or systems. For this, we are using simple examples - mainly based on the work of Peter Senge (Literature: Peter Senge et. al., The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook, 1994). Peter Senge documented the most common set of patterns of behavior in organizations that have the tendency of reoccurring. These patterns almost always result in negative consequences due to mismanaging com...

Software (Product) Development Example Model von Kai Neumann

Small model on product development (in this case Consideo's improvement of data import functionality of the iMODELER) and how to use same basic features of the iMODELER like change of perspectives, use of categories and filters and some of the analysis functionality like the new bar charts and the benefit from the new weighting that comes with version 6. For more see the presenter (Menu ... Presenter).

PiM: Building a new garden house (Qualitative Analysis) von Kai Neumann

The aim of this little model is to explore the project modeling possibilities of the PROCESS-iMODELER (it is called PROCESS-iMODELER though it is just a feature of the quantitative iMODELER). The project at hand is the building of a small garden house. The model probably isn't complete in its details as it should just show the functionality.

PiM: Optimal Parameter for Service Process von Kai Neumann

This is just a small model to show how PROCESS iMODELER (PiM) factors can be included in quantitative models. In this case it is a service and the question how many resource are optimal in order to satisfy the customers without becoming too expensive. Thus the Number of Resources is modeled with a range() function.

Collaborative Commons (J. Rifkin), Sharing Economy, Internet 4.0 (IoT) von Kai Neumann

This is the start of a collaborative model on the question whether the internet of things and the sharing economy will reshape the way we live, whether it will prevail, create or cost jobs, increase or decrease our living standards and whether it will have a positive effect on our environment. A major factor will be our net happiness. According to KNOW-WHY-Thinking we need to feel integration and development. It is way easier to feel good by buying something new (developement) and than having something (...

PiM: Building a new garden house (Learning Curve and Working Hours) 2 von Kai Neumann

The aim of this little model is to explore the project modeling possibilities of the PROCESS-iMODELER (it is called PROCESS-iMODELER though it is just a feature of the quantitative iMODELER). The project at hand is the building of a small garden house. The model probably isn't complete in its details as it just should show the functionality. Here it is the modeling of a learning curve and the definition of working hours for resources.

iM Version 8 feat iM-Optimizer von Kai Neumann

This is just a very small model to show the iM-Optimizer feature coming with version 8 of the iMODELER. For more see the Menu....Presenter. Don't hesitate to ask for more explanation here on KNOW-WHY.NET and please post your own enhanced versions of this model.
