Leverage Point Modeling (LPM) is a demonstrated approach for improved planning and spending for Operations and Support (O&S) activities. LPM is a continuous-event simulation technique that uses the System Dynamics approach of model building. Dr. Nathaniel Mass championed the potential of LPM, and adapted it for the Department of Defense (DoD) as a tool for jumping to a higher performance curve as a means of offsetting higher costs and declining budgets. The purpose of LPM is to test policies and investments that improve mission capability for a given level of investment or funding.
Simple bathtub model to show the differnce between Stock and Flow.
This is an element of Systemic Perspective Simulaiton with Insight Maker.
Run the model with various values for filling and draining to see the implications.
The simple diet CLD structure implemented as a SFD simulation.
Bathtub model with max fill rate control added to account for the maximum rate water can enter via the faucet.
The simple diet SFD simulation elaborated to indlcue calories, calorie reduction and metabolism.
This is the entry model that describes the four building blocks, Stock, Flow, Variable and LInk, used to develop models.
