Abstract for: Getting Started with Stella
In this workshop we will guide participants through the construction of models using Stella Professional. The workshop has no prerequisites. It is designed for people who are new to Stella or wish to renew their relationship with Stella in its modern form. We will work through the basic mechanics of setting up and using the software and then together build and analyze a simple model. Participants will learn the mechanics of using the software including constructing a diagram and connecting everything together to create a simulating model. We will explore the use of custom table and graphs as well as the built in analytics for understanding models and the use of Stella Live to gain insights into model behavior. IMPORTANT **AHEAD OF THE WORKSHOP** - IF YOU DO NOT HAVE STELLA 2.0 USE THE Additional Materials BUTTON TO GET A WORKSHOP VERSION OF STELLA ARCHITECT AND INSTALL IT.
