Learn about systems modelling and how it can improve understanding, identify problems, and support decision making. Explore different types of models and their classification in this free course.
Maps and plans, architects and engineers, drawings, graphs and tables: all are models we use in everyday life. This free course, Systems modelling, will introduce you to the modelling process, enabling you to recognise that systems models may be used in different ways as part of a process for: improving understanding of a situation
Identifying problems or formulating opportunities and supporting decision making.
