POW-ER: Computational Modeling of C2 Organizations and Processes (archived)
MetadataShow full item record
Through collaboration with colleagues at Stanford University, the Edge Center has developed extensive experience with POW-ER (Projects, Organizations and Work for Edge Research), an environment for computational modeling of organizations and processes. POW-ER enables one to model, simulate and analyze the comparative performance of alternate organization designs--including different organization structures, work processes, technologies and personnel--in a virtual environment. This enables the comparative strengths and weaknesses of competing organization designs to be identified and analyzed, very quickly, in advance of making decisions to commit or change to any one or another. Hence it can inform the organization leader and policy maker to an unprecedented degree.
