Introduction to Systems Thinking and Modelling Summer School 2019

The Capability Systems Centre at UNSW Canberra will host the Systems Thinking and Modelling Summer School the week before MODSIM 2019.

The Summer School on Model-based decision analysis brings students of various backgrounds the fundamental knowledge and practice on the use of models to support decision analysis, learning, and problem-solving. The summer school will cover several topics and will equip you with the essential resources you will need throughout your modelling journey, including:

• How can you scope your research project using modelling and simulation as a primary research method?

• What problem framing and conceptualization techniques can you use in your project?

• How can you design and use a multi-method (optimisation, simulation, exploratory analysis) approach to enrich your project?

• What are the good modelling practices that you can follow to build your model’s credibility and maximize its impact?

• How can you document your modelling?


• Jump start your research project with fundamental knowledge about modelling methodologies, techniques, and tools.

• Get hands-on experience with several modelling tools, including AnyLogic Simulation and Python analysis packages.

• Network and share your research problem and ideas with like-minded people.

• Challenge yourself through a set of group exercises, interactive tutorials, real-life case studies.

• Lots of fun activities.


• Undergraduate (senior year B.Sc./B.E.) and graduate (M.Sc and Ph.D.) level students who are interested in using modelling and simulation as their primary research method.

• Practitioners who wish to use modelling in their organisations.
