|Type of SD Work
||The Modeling and Simulation Program applies mathematical modeling and analysis techniques to understanding and improving the performance of human systems.
Research and applications of mathematical and statistical models are the core of this program's activities, whether the models represent structural descriptions of human abilities, interests, or temperaments; dynamic simulations of skill acquisition, retention, and performance; or more global models of human systems.
In addition, we develop and evaluate prescriptive models, including models that optimize person-job matching based on aptitudes and interests, or that guide the design of training systems to maximize effectiveness within cost constraints.
An important component of our activities is the evaluation of modeling and simulation technology for training.
Finally, we participate in projects focused on the collection and analysis of data to support modeling research, policy analysis, or corporate decision making.
|Where SD fits in your organization
||The Modeling and Simulation Program is one of seven programs in HumRRO's Research and Consulting Operations Division. Since its inception, HumRRO has been involved in the assembly/collection and analysis of data to provide concrete, objective feedback to our clients regarding how programs and policies affect organizations and individuals. System dynamics modeling is one of several tools we use to meet our clients' needs.
