Using simulation in Education & Research has two main benefits:
- mastering a simulation software that can be used for all kinds of discrete, continuous and hybrid systems,
- helping students understand factually and lively concepts of production, finance, science, networks and so on.
The European research project SPICOSA* about coastal zone systems has chosen ExtendSim. Its aim is to encourage research on coastal zone systems in Europe, through a balanced consideration of its ecological, social and economic aspects. Simulation was the proof of this integration of the economic dimension in the system approach, mixing system dynamics and economic dynamics in models studying codfish populations, fisheries and shell-fisheries management, water quality in the Thau Lagoon…
