System Modeling

MacA&D can model and simulate systems driven by cause and affect. Those systems include financial, production, inventory, biological, chemical, thermodynamic, and workflow. Systems are modeled as Causal Loop Diagrams with nodes representing system variables and connecting lines representing causal effects. The changing value of each variable causes other variables to change as described by equations. Understanding how a system really works is the first step towards using, improving, automating, or explaining it to others.

Threading Toolkit

The PreemptiveThreadTD toolkit includes 4 classes for implementing and communicating with preemptive threads. Using these classes REALbasic users can create threads that execute code which would block a standard Thread and lead to sluggish behavior or a frozen UI. Because PreemptiveThreadTD threads are managed by the host OS they never prevent other application threads from receiving time, and will even be scheduled across multiple processors according to the rules of the host OS.
