New Methods for Understanding Complex Systems (Part 1)

As the challenges of systems analysis develop, so must its methods. The system analyst’s tool chest can be expanded in three ways:

  • by taking advantage of as yet untapped advances in mathematics and computer science,
  • by the gradual honing of tools applied and developed in a disciplinary context, and
  • by trans-disciplinary innovation and cross-fertilization.

This session will provide an extensive horizon scan of new methods and approaches that have potential for strengthening systems analysis in the 21st century.
