Abstract for: Collaboration in model use

Whilst there is a considerable body of literature on collaborative or group model building there is less in the field of collaboration post-model building. The advent of an enhanced ability to host models on the web contributes to the sharing of models, but true collaboration using system dynamics modelling in a web based environment is relatively rare. This paper sets out an innovative approach to both the technological advances necessary to achieve this and embeds it in a real world collaborative modelling environment, namely that of medical workforce planning in England.
