|The Modelling Framework Representation (MFR)|
|The Modelling Framework Representation: Overview of the work to date|
|Modelling Framework defines and represents both physical and modelling domains|
|Conceptual view of the Modelling Framewok Representation|
A simplified overview of the framework concept is shown in below. This highlights a
sub-system, which represents a product system. Each sub-system contains a number of
components. The components are designed to represent external entities such as models. Where models
do not exist they can be represented by an aggregation of components that do rep-resent models.
Components contain collections of objects, which deal with the modelling repre-sentation. These hold and transfer properties via links with other components and evaluate. They also handle data from represented models or other sources external to the framework such as test or real time data.
