Tools and training
PartiSim is supported by a full toolset, including a user guide and paper-based tools. Each of the six stages of the modelling process has its own tools and procedures, all of which can be downloaded from the list available in the Using PartiSim page.
You may think your system would benefit from the PartiSim approach but that you lack the necessary expertise and experience in modelling or facilitation. Don’t worry: the members of the PartiSim team are happy to provide further support and training.
You can contact us directly to discuss your requirements. Alternatively, we can deliver support, bespoke training through the OR Society’s training suite or, if you are a larger group, customised training for your team. Any help we provide will be entirely bespoke and tailored to your specific needs.
The PartiSim team
The PartiSim approach was developed by Dr Antuela Tako, a Senior Lecturer in Operational Research at Loughborough University’s School of Business and Economics, and Dr Kathy Kotiadis, a Reader in Management Science at Canterbury Christ Church University.
