is a free Software Platform for Plug&Play Simulations. All Simulations are calculated by our Simulation Engine. The concept behind our approach is called System Dynamics.
Characteristically for any complex environment is that there are a lot of interacting parameters. While single parameters and formula may be well-known, the behaviour of the system as a whole can get too complicated to overlook. This effect is called Emergence.
This Documentation should help you to understand not only the software’s calculations, but also the method behind – including Balanced Scorecards – and a quick introduction to System Dynamics. Besides, it is going to explain the use of our products in detail for every product panel that there is. As well, it’s a work in progress, so the documentation may always be trailing a little behind the software itself.
Predicted Desire (PD), our piloting 21st century Startup Product Calculator, follows a top-down approach, and will allow you to overview the situation, anytime. PD is being developed under continuous, agile development, with 2-4 week development cycles.
From 2017, the successor of Predicted Desire is called Startup Product Manager. As PD has climbed all its way up to be No. 1 at Google Search, even though nobody had an idea what this was about, it was time for a new name. In being a 21st century Startup ourselves, we found out about what we like and can do best. We started to name our products according to what they do. This way, we don’t need any trademarks. We just use words in simple language and get a strong rating of our key product functionality from Google, for free.
A drawback is that most of these words show heavy competition. But it fits in line with our agile developent strategy to work ourselves all the way up from the very bottom.
Perfect Desire (P) is our upcoming professional client. Based on Predicted Desire, it not only offers the possibility of simulate product cost, revenue and net profit of a Startup or Small Business. With Perfect Desire, we’ll allow everyone to develop your very own business model. Modify any existing model, rename values, delete values, and create new Input Values, Targets, and Formula. With nothing else needed than the Rule of Three, you’ll be able to customize, invent, and define your very own, interactive 21st century Business Model calculator, and interactive 4-year planner. Worldwide.
