User Guide - Vensim Introduction & Tutorials
|Top Previous Next|
The Vensim Introduction and Tutorials present the main features of the Vensim simulation software. The tutorials guide the user through Vensim with a hands-on approach. You can examine existing models, construct your own causal loop diagrams, build stock and flow diagrams, and run simulation models. Advanced features of Vensim, such as sensitivity testing, subscripting (arrays), and optimization, are presented using existing simulation models to speed learning.
Much of the material applies to all Vensim configurations. The exceptions are noted in the individual sections and in the Overview of the Tutorial.
For new users of Vensim, the presentation is designed to be read and worked through from beginning to end. Experienced Vensim users may wish to read the updated reference sections about the Equation Editor and the updated Optimization tutorial.
