Albeit there is adequate knowledge and experience, complex situations, even though in a state of obvious interconnectedness and undramatic dynamics, reveal characteristics and attitudes which neither can be described in a sufficiently precise manner nor managed in a targeted way or even can be predicted. The application of methodical tools which are available partly in highly specified forms soon meets its limits, drawn by complexity. To overcome these limits tools with the following properties are necessary:

  • They have to provide an as exact as possible mapping of the relevant variables, structures and behaviour patterns.
  • They should be flexible and well-manageable for experiments and
  • should have a comprehensive analytical methodology.

Our complex modelling approaches fulfil the essential conditions of the majority of analytical and demanding strategic problems and their solutions. Generally the models are built as modular constructions. This allows a successive extension, beginning with comparatively manageable networks (number of variables between 20 and 30; number of connections between 30 and 60) up to high-complex simulation systems with thousands of components.
