It exists some kinds of software to develop the practical applications of this technique. It is always possible to obtain a free version. The most used are:
Vensim is the most complete software and versatil than exists in the creation of models of System Dynamics, allowing us to cover all the areas of the modelización, from the simplest models to most complex.
This software has specific functionalities for applications in economy and management of companies. It has very powerful graphical utilities, that make to him very friendly for the non-expert user.
Stella appeared in 1985 for Mac equipment and constituted a true revolution, that allowed to leave the old format of Dynamo programming, since it offered a visualization of the relations between elements and the nonlinear functions. Its main destiny at the present time is for scientific applications, investigation, and in education.
The scopes of application of this software are in the enterprise area. They are mainly financial models, management of clients, human analyses of production, resources and development of new products.
