Sustainability Assessment (SA) is a complex appraisal method. It is conducted for supporting decision-making and policy in a broad environmental, economic and social context, and transcends a purely technical/scientific evaluation.

Combining discrete-event and continuous models

Environmental management system models may contain subsystems which are represented by differential equations and other interrelated processes which are represented by discrete-event model.

There are two types of events that may cause interaction between the discrete-events and continuous portion of the environmental management model. One of these is an event that occurs independent of the subsystem modeled by the differential equations, and the other is an event that occurs because of some functions of the dependent variables of the differential equations.

As an illustration of these event types, consider the simulation of "building constructions" and the sensitivity analysis of architecture where the motion change of the environment is represented by differential equations. The role of the architecture in a modified version of the "simulation control flowchart" will include the capability management of "sustainable development process" with integrating differential equations.

Sustainable development is a new management paradigm, one whose principles can be operationalized and used to improve how practitioners of all levels manage the complexity and dynamics of organizations, projects and programs.
