Abstract

Agent-based modeling (ABM) is a simulation method where the mass behavior of different interacting actors determines the dynamics of the system as a whole. Scientists describe the rules of behavior of agents at the individual level, in particular how these agents decide to act and interact under certain conditions, while the general dynamics of the system arises as a result of the local choices interactions. Such models allow to overcome many limitations in management analysis and policy assessment. Where it is impossible to conduct a field experiment introducing certain measures, agent-based modeling is used for a realistic assessment of the consequences, since it is possible to take into account the heterogeneity of decisions and attitudes of individuals, their resistance to change, the evolution of attitudes, capabilities and changes in norms.
