System Dynamics Glossary

What is the meaning of Concept?

In general usage, a concept is a general notion. In a concept map, a concept is also an idea or general notion. Concepts range from hard, physical ideas, or notions, to fuzzy ideas which involve or describe entities without measurable units. Just as in cognitive mapping where individual concepts are expressed as a call for action, in concept mapping the same conventions are followed.
