The 1994 International System Dynamics Conference, held in Stirling, reviewed a range of related Systems Thinking approaches. This paper focuses on the specific approach described by Eden in Stirling and proposes a number of guidelines that can be used to explicitly and formally link Eden's Systems Thinking approaches to formal simulation models.
