At no time are we obligated to provide notes for every lecture. Understand that these notes are NOT a replacement for either coming to lecture or for the class readings. Indeed, these notes represent only a PARTIAL SET, which means it's up to you to attend class (or to find someone else's notes) to fill in the SUBSTANTIAL fraction of the lecture that has been left out of these notes. Indeed, these notes may represent only a draft and may be based on last term's lectures (which may or may not be repeated in their entirety for this term.)

Overview Lectures 13 and 15 will be spent doing a simulation (a model) – A model captures some aspect of reality – Models are a key aspect of systems thinking • Can be used to identify cause-effect • Can be used to anticipate future behaviors • Can be used to generate what-if scenarios – Common in engineering – In our case, used for understanding – This particular simulation will be done as a game (as opposed to a computer simulation) Overview of Lectures 13 & 15 These lectures will be spent doing a simulation (a model) – A model captures some aspect of reality – Models are a key aspect of systems thinking • Can be used to identify cause-effect • Can be used to anticipate future behaviors • Can be used to generate what-if scenarios – Common in engineering – In our case, used for understanding – This particular simulation will be done as a game (as opposed to a computer simulation) This simulation is a model of a production- distribution system – Extremely common in engineering – Gives an insight to human systems in engineering – Helpful in understanding another human system (your project) Overview of Lectures 13 & 15 In this simulation, we are going to produce and distribute a beverage It takes one bartender to make a drink, it takes an engineer to make a thousand Overview of Lectures 13 & 15 Simulation Preliminaries You will be divided into ten teams Choose a name for your team – Name is the beverage that you’ll be “making” and “distributing” Remember which team you’re on – You ll be on the same team for 2007 June 15, Friday
