The approach of this present article could be included in systemics as methodology of scientific intervention, using formal means for the knowledge of reality.
For some, systemics provides a reliable field for methodological application —understood as scientific method— and for others —the more speculative— tries to find all kinds of similarities between systems, omitting all mathematical forma- lism and paying more importance to the richness of ordinary language. In both groups, we establish the scientific concept of metaphor.
In our case, systemics —their dynamic part— are built up as a tool of analysis and prediction of the behaviour of the system object of the study. In this way we try to propound the bases of a future and more profound simulation of applied system. From this point of view we have based our study. In it, we hope to know the probable length of a shot putt, starting from the application of selected battery of field tests. To help this objective, we have made an informatic program to help the automatic calculation of the various factors and the simulation of the results.
