System Dynamics Glossary

What is the meaning of System Dynamics (System Dynamics Modelling)?

System dynamics (system dynamics modelling) is a tool intended to enable our thinking about how feedback, delay, shifting feedback loop dominance, and non-linearity contribute to systemic behaviour. System dynamics (system dynamics modelling) is a methodology embedded in the cybernetic or control paradigm, that is the ‘branch of control theory which deals with socio-economic systems’ (Coyle, 1977).
