Dynamic Systems Modeling & Analysis

Course Code: 
IE 602

The course primarily aims to advance the participants’ dynamic model building and analysis skills. In that respect, the topics that will be covered include problem identification and framing, model conceptualization, model validation, sensitivity analysis, and policy analysis. Additionally, the course aims to improve the skills of the students in individually conducting a modeling study. For that purpose, the participants will be conducting a guided study through out the semester, starting from problem identification and ending with reporting the results. Although the studies will be conducted individually, progress discussions will be collective. This way, the students will have the chance to be both on the feedback giving, and receiving sides. A successful participant is expected to finalize the guided study with a complete report, which can be submitted as a conference paper.
