Systems Dynamics Application Case Study

Assignment Overview

“System dynamics is a method for studying the world around us.  Unlike other scientists, who study the world by breaking it up into  smaller and smaller pieces, system dynamicists look at things as a  whole. The central concept to system dynamics is understanding how all  the objects in a system interact with one another” (MIT, 1997.) Note  that in system dynamics, the interrelationships between components is  just as important as individual components. This assignment requires you  to research systems theory and apply systems theory and systems  dynamics concepts to a real-world supply chain management case study.

Assignment Directions

To complete this assignment:

  • Start by searching the Capella library or other online sources  for “Systems Theory” and “Systems Dynamics.” In particular, consider the  work of Jay Forrester as seminal.
  • Review the Toba, Tomasini, and Yang article you read in this  unit’s study activity. As you review, consider how you can apply the  concepts of systems theory you located during your search to improve the  organization’s supply chain model.
  • Write a 3–4 page paper applying systems theory and systems  dynamics to the Toba et al. case to evaluate the efficacy of Kaiser  Permanente’s current supply chain model.
    • Evaluate the supply chain’s overall performance and business impact.
    • Evaluate the effectiveness of the supply chain’s techniques,  including process management, inventory management, capacity planning,  and constraint management.
    • Identify which processes in the supply chain could most benefit  from statistical analysis. Consider statistical tools that you have  been introduced to in prior coursework. Where could you use statistical  analysis to improve the performance of the organization’s supply chain?

As you complete your assignment, be sure your paper meets the following guidelines:

  • Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.
  • APA formatting: All resources and citations should be formatted according to current APA style and formatting guidelines.
