Conceptual Models
10101031030700Conceptual ModelsIf we need a model with an internal structure and processes we can understand, manipulate, and possibly expand, then it is convenient to specify these qualitative aspects first, before we formalize them and add quantitative aspects in a mathematical model. This step in the modeling process is accomplished via a conceptual model. In this chapter we introduce two predominantly visual representations of internal system structure and function: block diagrams and component diagrams.In the previous chapter, we specified what we require from a model in terms of input-output behavior and in terms of structures and processes that need to be inclu…
