Insight Maker Alternatives

    Insight Maker is described as 'Explore powerful simulation algorithms for System Dynamics and Agent Based Modeling in a truly cohesive environment. Use System Dynamics to gain insights into your system. Use Agent Based Modeling to granularly break apart the details'. There are five alternatives to Insight Maker, not only websites but also apps for Windows, Linux and Mac. The best alternative is Xcos, which is both free and Open Source. Other great sites and apps similar to Insight Maker are Minsky (Free, Open Source), Simulink (Paid), EMSO simulator (Free, Open Source) and GAMS (Paid).
