Systèmes d'Information et Management


This paper formulates the apprenticeship problematic of the complex relationships (1) between the companies internal and external agents. Within the framework of a rational view of these complex phenomena based on the Forrester's System Dynamics paradigm, we try to justify the significance of this method in relation to the traditional educational techniques. Finally, we present an active learning tool by using a generic simulation model of production system behavior based on a management flight simulator approach (2).(1) Il s'agit ici d'interrelations de type réciproque au sens de Thomson (1967), donc de type cybernétique(2) Voir Bakken et al. in " Modeling for learning Organizations " (1994) ; Forrester (1990) ; Sterman (1988) ; Meadows (1989).
