  • Causal Tracing™

    Vensim’s Causal Tracing enables fast and accurate analysis of model dynamics. See it in action in a video tutorial, or read more about it.

  • Data Science meets the bottom line

    Vensim can be used to put big data in context, by incorporating the learnings from big data in simulations that account for organizational structure and finances. Vensim can also do data intensive simulation, with flexible I/O, advanced algorithms for calibration, … Continue reading

  • Translating Vensim models to Ventity

    This video covers Ventity’s features for importing Vensim models.0:00 – a quick overview of the import feature and how we think about it1:37 – importing a simple model of stock management18:05 – importing a more complex, subscripted competitive market model

  • Dynamic Simulation > Spreadsheets

    This video explores the improvements possible when a complex spreadsheet model is translated into Vensim.

  • Work-education mismatch

    Congratulations to Navid Ghaffarzadegana, Xue Yi and Richard Larson for their publication in EJOR, Work-education mismatch: An endogenous theory of professionalization.

  • Vensim 7 Synthesim + Sensitivity https://vimeo.com/223688311 In Vensim 7, we’ve combined real-time Synthesim with sensitivity analysis, so you can see the distribution of outcomes from Monte Carlo runs interactively. This is great for giving users an appreciation of the risk associated with a decision, rather than just a best guess.
  • Data Science, Connected to the Bottom Line Data Science, Connected to the Bottom Linehttps://vimeo.com/206297867/1d77447143 Vensim can be used to put big data in context, by incorporating the learnings from big data in simulations that account for organizational structure and finances. Vensim can also do data intensive simulation, with flexible I/O, advanced algorithms for calibration, optimal filtering, confidence bounds and Monte Carlo simulation.
  • Modeling Discrete & Stochastic Events It’s generally a good idea to begin thinking about your models with continuous time and quantities, particularly for strategic applications where you care about the big picture. But there are times when it matters that quantities are discrete – you can’t ride half a horse. Here’s a quick look at modeling such situations, starting with ...
  • Vensim Causal Loop Diagramming This video shows several ways to build causal loop diagrams in Vensim. We start simple with Vensim PLE, and then illustrate some additional features, like navigation links, that are possible in DSS. The first ten minutes should have you up & running on the basics. https://vimeo.com/179249938
  • Model Analysis – World Dynamics This video walks through a critique of the World model that kicked off the Limits to Growth debate, starting with Forrester’s World Dynamics, followed by World3 and the Limits to Growth and many subsequent works. The purpose of this video is not to discuss the mapping of the world models to the real world, though that ...
