These models and simulations have been tagged “Roam”.
This model is derived from the paper "Nobody Ever Gets Credit for Fixing Problems that Never Happened: Creating and Sustaining Process Improvement" by Nelson P. Repenning and John D Sterman. See Insight 752 for a causal loop version of this model.

To develop insights regarding a situation of interest there are a number of things should be considered to ensure a view of the relevant influences.
Part 1 demonstrates Picture primitives and Links to create representations of interactions. These are made visually attractive because the Picture primitives are overlay'd with images.
Faced with a performance gap the two most obvious responses are to work harder or work smarter. There are trade offs associated with each, some obvious, some not so obvious.

Some people have found it easier to communicate interactions and their implications with Connection Circles rather than Causal Loop Diagrams.
The simple savings account is used to demonstrate the nature of a reinforcing loop. Change the initial amount and interest rate and run the model to see the implications of changing these values.
Bathtub model with max fill rate control added to account for the maximum rate water can enter via the faucet.
