System Dynamics models are composed of different flow and state variables, with multiple interactions. In the process of identifying the relevant structure that leads to the observed behavior, the method of "Loop Eigenvalue Elasticity Analysis" (LEEA) can be very useful in quickly identifying the modes loops most relevant over time for this behavior.
The method was originally proposed by Kampmann and Oliva in 2006. This video is a tutorial that shows the implementation of such method when applied to a specific example.
The video first discusses the theory behind the analysis, then describes step by step the process of data gathering and processing, to finally describe the analysis of results.
In order to reproduce what is shown in the video, both VENSIM and Mathematica software packages are required.
