Integrated environmental modeling: A vision and roadmap for the future
Model Conceptualization is the most important activity in the development of a system dynamics model. Since Randers’ classic paper 23 years ago, researchers in the field have worked in the development and refinement of tools and methods to improve the process. Although progress has been made, we still lack understanding of the process itself. The purpose of the paper is to review the progress in the model conceptualization area, and concludes with initial ideas for a research program.
