Abstract

Industrial Dynamics involves system modelling, simulation and evaluation leading to policy making. Traditional approaches to industrial dynamics use expert knowledge to build top-down models that have been criticised as not taking into account the adaptability and sociotechnical features of modern organisations. Furthermore, such models require a-priori knowledge of policy-making theorems. This paper advances recent research on bottom-up agent-based organisational modelling for Industrial Dynamics by presenting a framework where simulations produce histories that can be used to establish a range of policy-based theorems. The framework is presented and evaluated using a case study that has been implemented using a toolset called ESL.
