The paper proposes the computing environment which allows buildingforecasts based on System Dynamics models. The environment is equipped withGUI for building dynamic models according to Forrester’s methodology. The uniquefeature of the application is that the created models can be calibrated with the help ofoptimization procedures tailored for solving nonlinear least squares problems with differential–algebraic equations. Furthermore, the application enables verification ofdecision rules inherited in System Dynamics models by solving problems associated with the models dynamic optimization—then the model with optimal decision rulescan be simulated to build forecasts of interests. To illustrate the functionalities ofthe environment, the example of the model of drug prevalence is discussed in somedetail.
