Iconic, Analogue, Mathematical or analytical, Computer simulation, and Artificial intelligence. The systems model building process, achieving the above, includes as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. Model Model Model Model formulation, verification (existing data), application to predict new observations, and refinement to achieve precision (Jackson 2000). Contingency View The contingency view depends on a body of knowledge and research tasks that focus on interrelationships among key variables and projects in program management.

Avoid knowledge and information collected that are obviously biased to particular viewpoints. Program managers must find alternative ways of measuring the same thing. If unbiased sources are not available, the manager may find sources with differing (and hopefully compensating) biases. For example, allocation of staff from project A to project B should equal the transfer of staff to project B from project A. Methodology and Knowledge Preparation This is an essential part of the decision-making procedure and involves the program manager in preparing knowledge and information for the decision-making processes such as follows: 1.

4. Engineering system, including design and constructability; Type of system that relates to each project within the program; Environment of a system; Hierarchical system (A basic concept in systems thinking is that of hierarchical relationships between systems. A system is composed of subsystems of a lower order and is also part of a super-system. Thus, there is a hierarchy of the components of the system); 5. Systems analysis and decision making; and 6. Systems models including mathematical modeling, optimization techniques, statistical analysis, and intelligent models and simulations.
