The investigation (i.e. modelling, simulation, understanding and control) of complex adaptive systems is a problematic issue mainly due to the immaturity of systems scientific modelling paradigms. The apparent analogies between complex adaptive systems and production networks provide the opportunity to formulate the latter one in terms of the first, and to integrate the knowledge and the way of thinking of both fields. Through the application of the method of analogy and agent-based modelling and the development of a methodology a disciplined way of thinking is presented that involves the formulation of natural scientific concepts in terms of simulation models.
