This model intends to simulate employee competency levels over time. Factors affecting competency levels are: 1. knowledge  2. skills  3. attitude  4. training system  5. new technologies or job requirements  6. recruitment system  7. economy  8. Self-Development (Practice/No Practice)  9. Attrition

 Project management in an ideal world. The project has a defined scope, work rate and runs according to the initial schedule. 
 Schedule pressure is constant until the project is completed.

This story contains a conceptual model of phosphorus cycling in a dune-lake system in the Northland region of New Zealand. It is based on the concept of a stock and flow diagram. Each orange ellipse represents an input, while each blue box represents a stock. Each arrow represents a flow. A flow involves a loss from the stock at which it starts and an addition to the stock at which it ends.
