We are proud to present a white paper created within an organization that utilize the system dynamics method and our Powersim Studio 8 tools extensively.
At The 29'th International Conference of the System Dynamics Society July, 2011, Leonard Malczynski published a white paper called "Powersim Studio Best Practices Manual" with colleagues from Sandia National Laboratories and other contributors.
This guide addresses software quality in the construction of Powersim Studio 8 system dynamics simulation models. It is the result of almost ten years of experience with the Powersim Suite of system dynamics modeling tools (Constructor and earlier Studio versions). It is a guide that proposes a common look and feel for the construction of Powersim Studio system dynamics models.

We highly recommend this paper since it give tips on how to better organize your simulation models which is excellent for team work. Also the paper illustrates ways and features to document your modeling work.
