Simulation models can be used to predict how a system will behave. Computer simulations use rules to model system changes and apply them repeatedly to predict behavior. In most cases, there is an element of uncertainty about the changes produced by a rule and repeated simulations are used to model patterns of behavior. At present, most simulation models provide animated graphics that can help provide an insight into the system and its dynamic behavior.
