FLOW DIAGRAM 2)5)
A feature of J. FORRESTER's Systems Dynamics, connecting levels (i.e. states, in FORRESTER's wording).
FORRESTER writes: "The flow diagram should show how levels and rates are interconnected to produce the feedback loops and how the feedback loops interlink to create the system" or still "The flow diagram should show the level, rate and auxiliary equations and how they are interconnected" (1973, p.7-1).
In Systems Dynamics, flows are carrying matter or information.
- 1) General information
- 2) Methodology or model
- 3) Epistemology, ontology and semantics
- 4) Human sciences
- 5) Discipline oriented
