"System Dynamics", Yes or Not?

I am searching about different methods prevalent for innovation system studies, most of them are discriptive. I found some papers which use "system dynamics" method. They are interesting. But, you know, most of innovation systems theorists don't agree to use it. What do you think? What is your preference? Using Simulation, Yes or Not and Why?

Well, it is not that easy to answer your question. There is a number of studies applying the system dynamics method to innovation system. Whether it makes sense to use it or not will depend on what your aim is. Do you want to evaluate an innovation system, compare several ISs, explore the interactions within the system or something else?

Dear Parisa, 
Here are some of my posters, papers and a chapter, on a data management system (LESARD) designed for agricultural innovation systems modeling and evidence using the LESARD

One of the areas that are among the greatest future achievements of the 21st century is the creation of artificial intelligence, which will find applications in various types of information systems used in industry and information services, processing huge data sets, Big Data database systems, forecasting and managing complex organizations. Currently, innovations are being created in various fields of production and services, generation of new technological solutions. New technological solutions, including technical, product, process, organizational and other innovations in their essence are the result of creativity and creative ingenuity of inventors. If innovation is inseparably connected with the human need of creativity of intelligence and perhaps also some kind of artistry, then whether artificial intelligence in the future will be able to replace man in these types of human creative activity. Will artificial intelligence be able to learn artistry in the matter of generating innovative technological solutions, will it create innovative technologies according to strictly or generally defined determinants, defined variables, determined factors? Will artificial intelligence be able to generate innovative technologies as a response to the question asked for the Smart Data database system?
