Systems Dynamics as boundary objects @ Research Fest 2010 Imperial College - the HaCIRIC project

  1. 1. The roles of Simulation models in design projects Explore the roles of simulation models in the interfaces between experts during design projects Simulation model roles: • Boundary object (communicate) Participant • Representation object (represent, picture) Expert • Epistemic object (learn, experiment. develop) • Technical object (plan, predict, test) Research questions Client Simulation Modeller 1.How project participants Model engage with models during the process of designing a model? 2.Which role(s) the model User takes during the process of its own design? Outcome so far: The simulation model can be used as a boundary and epistemic object if it 3.Do these roles benefit functions effectively as a representation object. This role seems to be the key to help participants understand, learn and construct a model that helps the design process and predict and plan systemic changes to solve healthcare problems, only if the participants? group is committed to the project objective and there is a learning goal embedded in the project process.
