In recent times there has been a lot of interest on system dynamics modelling, a concept first introduced by MIT professor J. W. Forrester in the 1950s. The increase of computing power and advance of computers has enabled the analysis and simulation of many large scale systems. There are several commercial tools with easy-to-use graphical user interfaces available in the field of system dynamics. These commercial tools are briefly discussed in this paper. In addition to describing the tools, this paper gives a short introduction to system dynamics models and their capabilities with simple examples.
