Developing new ways of doing business together ...

The ReferenceModels that are the result of a CollaborationLab are in the form of process simulations. While the learnings from a particular simulation can be captured in tables, diagrams and papers, the simulations themselves are interactive computer systems that allow the viewer to:  1) interact with the topic at hand and, 2) watch the result of that interaction play out before them. 

This video demonstrates the basics of a simulation that, once completed, verified and accepted by industry, would be published as a ReferenceModel for a particular process, information or financial flow. The generic model could then be altered to reflect a company's specific environment to assess alternatives and predict outcomes of the actual implementation of these flow changes, as well as gauge the impact on other business practices.
