SYSTORY
SYSTORY

SYSTORY assists users to understand and visualize the dynamics of coastal systems and assess the influence of alternative scenarios on system trajectories over time.

POPULATION COLLAPSE
POPULATION COLLAPSE

Can population growth lead to collapse? Will technology and innovation help prevent it? Simulate this K-12 population-resource model and see how the dynamics unfold.

Eroding Goals
Eroding Goals

Ever aimed high and missed the mark? Check out this fresh take on the age-old eroding goals archetype. Learn about the model structure, simulate how the dynamics unfold and see what can be done to counter goal erosion.

Splash!
Splash!

A new kind of system dynamics software for beginning learners.

UQ CASES
UQ CASES

A multi-platform app with interactive cases on public health, ecosystems, tourism, inventory and capacity management.

Trash to Treasure
Trash to Treasure

A concept to encourage awareness of the value of waste, monitor, manage and optimize waste generation, and incentivize recycling.

Population Planner
Population Planner

A population model for K-12. Change the average birth and death rates and see whether the population grows or shrinks.

Operations Management
Operations Management

A simulation-based tool to experience and learn about the principal concepts of operations management.

'I' IN INFLATION
'I' IN INFLATION

‘I’ in Inflation presents a simple system dynamics model on rising prices for K-12. Experiment with the model to see how your purchasing power can go up or down, based on the rate of inflation.

Peak Oil 101
Peak Oil 101

A K-12 introduction to the basic forces that shape the behavior of global oil production. Use the app to learn the fundamentals of systems thinking, explore the dynamics of the global oil system and see how Peak Oil might occur.

BANNI: in a time of change
BANNI: in a time of change

The Banni Grasslands App is an interactive, dynamic simulation of the grasslands system. Users will be able to explore the relationship between the community and ecosystems services that the Banni provides.

RESIMOD
RESIMOD

An app that aids stakeholders' understanding and decision-making in the Limpopo River Basin.

BACTERIA SANDWICH
BACTERIA SANDWICH

A system dynamics model on bacterial growth for K-12. Experiment with the model to see how the number bacteria increases exponentially, and how cooling helps keep food safe.

Retire Rich
Retire Rich

A simple model on retirement planning for K-12. Experiment with it and find the best way to retire rich!

Testimonials

  • BTN and I have worked together on a software design and development project. The BTN team are creative, thorough, and flexible. By meeting their deadlines, the BTN team has kept our project on track. I would recommend BTN.

    Warren Farr
  • I first became aware of BTN at the System Dynamics conference in Delft, Netherlands (2016) and was immediately taken by their approach to blending system dynamics, story telling and learning. Meeting Ninad at Delft has started a wonderful journey of collaborating with BTN to develop two research tools (SESAMME and SYSTORY) from a World Bank project that I was working on at the time. I am now involved in another exciting project with BTN (UQ Cases) where the BTN magic will be used to make a suite of learning-based SD case models truly assessable to students in University classrooms. I have valued the professionalism and friendship of Ninad and Divya and can not recommend them, and BTN, highly enough.

    University of Queensland Dr Russell Richards
  • I have worked with BTN on several projects and have found them to be thoroughly professional and highly skilled at what they do. They have a unique ability to take complicated models and turn them into easy and fun to use apps, which makes them better learning tools for our students and better decision support tools for our industry clients. I thoroughly recommend BTN to make your models magic.

    University of Queensland Dr Carl Smith
  • The BTN team is highly intelligent and creative. As we have worked with them on several projects, they have shown confidence without arrogance, an ability to listen and synthesize combined with collegiality and cooperativeness. The work they produce is innovative and on time. In other words, BTN is a joy to work with!

    Creative Learning Exchange Lees Stuntz (Executive Director)
  • A few colleagues and I have been working with BTN to design some innovative software for undergraduate education. We have found the BTN team to be gifted in their artistic design, very well organized in the design process, and open to suggestions and opinions of the clients in this project. I recommend their significant artistic, technical, and business skills to others who might want to develop new software products that would appeal to a general or targeted audience.
