Simile
Developed by: S. Ltd.
Available at: http://simulistics.com/
Abstract
Simile is a software environment for building and running simulation models in ecology, biology, environmental science and related disciplines. It features a powerful and expressive diagram-based language for designing models, including both System Dynamics and object-based concepts. System Dynamics is an intuitive and widely-used notation for describing dynamics in terms of storages and flows, while objects provide a natural way for describing system composition and relationships. Simile also supports modular model construction, and modules can be nested to any depth. The resulting models can be run very efficiently as compiled C programs, and delivered to others as stand-alone models. Simile provides a range of tools for displaying model behaviour - but also allows you to add your own, customised to your own needs
Keywords: system dynamics, continuous time simulation, visual modelling, ecological modelling

AnyLogic
Developed by: T. A. Company"
Available at: http://www.anylogic.com/
Abstract
AnyLogic is a multi paradigm simulation tool that brings together System Dynamics, Process-centric (AKA Discrete Event), and Agent Based approaches within one modeling language and one model development environment. AnyLogic set of primitives and library objects allows you to model manufacturing and logistics, business processes, human resources, consumers' and patients' behavior, as well as the environment (the ``background'') in their natural interaction. The object-oriented model design paradigm supported by AnyLogic provides for modular and incremental construction of large models. AnyLogic can deploy both Java applets and applications.

WinA\&D
Developed by:
Available at: http://www.excelsoftware.com/
Abstract
ExcelSoftware develops WinA&D that allows a dynamic system to be modeled as a Causal Loop Diagram where nodes represent system variables and connecting lines represent causal effects. A time simulation of the model yields results presented with live charts, graphs and tables. No demo downloads available unfortunately.

mystrategy
Developed by:
Available at: http://www.strategydynamics.com/idsea/mystrategy
Abstract
mystrategy is a tool that supports the Strategy Dynamics approach by providing the facility to easily draw up resource maps for an organisation, enter and show historical data and future projections, and the option to go on and develop quantitative simulations of the organisation from the resource map. The reader is available for download and it allows to create limited-size models.
