Course Description)
2earning of system dynamics including system analysis3 modeling3 simulation analysis3
and sensitivity analysis to enable professions or organi4ations to deal with possible
outcome of a system and to develop and evaluate most liely scenarios to ma/imi4e the
benefits or minimi4e the impacts of a system under uncertain environments. 5his is a
Strategic 6anagement course.

System #ynamics will teach students to loo at a problem from a systematic and holistic
approach. 5he positive feedbac loop3 negative feedbac loop3 and their combination with
the application of level3 flow3 criteria convertor3 and interaction connector will be taught.
2earning and application of causal diagram to loo into a simple system then how to
decompose a large complicate system into many understandable sub-systems will be
taught. System #ynamics is a methodology for analysis of environmental3 social3
financial3 population growth issues3 etc. 7ith the tool of System #ynamics3 different
scenarios can be effectively proposed and evaluated for their benefit and cost. 5hus the
methodology together with the development of scenarios is the prime ob8ective of the
