Abstract for: The System Dynamics Applications Award

The System Dynamics Applications Award is presented by the Society as often as once every two years for the best “real world” application of system dynamics conducted within 10 years of the submission deadline. The best application is based primarily on demonstrated measurable benefit to an organization through the use of system dynamics, and secondarily for new ideas that improve the art of applying system dynamics, or for relating work to existing system dynamics literature and/or other disciplines.
