Using Enterprise Modeling and Simulation to Enhance Governance Studies in Complex Network Organizations
Model-based approaches as well as simulation are widely used to understand and analyze enterprises. Application of simulation techniques such as Systems Dynamics and Agent-based Modeling are specifically important. Thesis should apply model-based approaches and use one of the aforementioned methods of simulation to evaluate the effectiveness of regulations in complex network organizations and to capture the dynamics of interactions among agents of such systems. Such project should prominently enhance application of quantifying approaches in governance studies.

- Modeling and Simulation: Discovering Strategic Solutions with Agent-based Modeling and Simulation by Michael J. North and Charles M. Macal; Oxford University Press 2007
- The candidate should have in depth knowledge of Systems Dynamics and Agent-based Modeling and be quite experienced in using related software. The student should be able to apply modeling and simulation techniques to a real life case, quantify the problem and analyze the outcomes with statistical methods. Passing Fundamentals of Enterprise Systems (ES-621) and Governing Development (ES-677) as well as Modeling and Simulation (SYS-611) is a pre-requisite for this project.
