Abstract

An approach to the formulating of Forrester-style models through computer assistance is described. Such an approach is believed to mitigate many of the inadequacies of conventional model-building: high cost, low credibility, lack of policy maker involvement. Applicable to managerial contexts within society and industry, the approach motivates the development of structure through interactive computer interrogation. User responses are incorporated into an interaction matrix. The steps of the method are described in the paper and illustrated through recourse of a textbook example.
