Archetype

Ceiling Template

Benjamin David Hendricks
A template to be used when a stock metrically can't grow beyond a certain point---e.g. a 0-10 psychometric scale. 
The technique used to address the problem is based on Zeno's paradox, where Achilles is unable to reach a finish line because he must first cross half the distance, then half the remaining distance, ad infinitum. Likewise, this system reduces the growth rate proportionately to how close the stock is to the defined ceiling.
Parameters include the base growth rate (the rate at which the stock increases before the system's balancing loop activates), the ceiling, the initial value of the stock, and a "tolerance point." This is the point at which the system decides to intervene to prevent the stock from passing the ceiling, and begins to reduce the growth rate. Raising the tolerance of the system gives the base growth rate more dominance over the behavior graph while sharpening the negative curve at the top of the S-curve.
A note concerning simulation---only Runge-Kutta will calculate the appropriate behavior. Using Euler will result in oscillations around the ceiling.

MGMT S-5012 Tragedy of the Commons Archetype

DIEGO GOZER
A Tragedy of the Commons situation exists whenever two or more activities, each, which in order to produce results, rely on a shared limited resource. Results for these activities continue to develop as long as their use of the limited resource doesn't exceed the resource limit. Once this limit is reached the results produced by each activity are limited to the level at which the resource is replenished.

Clone of Success to the Successful Archetype

Trent J. Lythgoe
Success to the successful archetype represents two reinforcing structures which may be in a delicate balance though as soon as one gains a small advantage the resource allocation favors the more successful and the result is then rapidly skewed in the direction of the more successful. There is also a video for this model with is a component of the Systems Archetypes Course.

Clone of Addiction Archetype

Edwin Gary Schasteen
An Addiction structure is the same as the Shifting the Burden structure though with the annoying aspect that one becomes addicted to the side effect ensuring that Fundamental Solution won't get implemented and the Symptomatic Solution will be applied repeatedly, and likely with greater frequency. There is a also a video for this insight which is a component of the Systems Thinking World Kumu e-Learning Environment.

Clone of Tragedy of the Commons Archetype/SFD

Graham Moore
A Tragedy of the Commons situation exists whenever two or more activities, each, which in order to produce results, rely on a shared limited resource. Results for these activities continue to develop as long as their use of the limited resource doesn't exceed the resource limit. Once this limit is reached the results produced by each activity are limited to the level at which the resource is replenished. As an example, consider multiple departments with an organization using IT resources, until they've exhausted IT capacity.
