The term ‘model’ was formerly used mainly to denote physical scale representations of objects. Our usage of this term in engineering is widening. For example, we talk more of ‘analytical modelling’ rather than of ‘structural analysis’ because we do have a much wider choice of models than in the pre-computer era. To some extent it is the development in the use of computers that has caused us to think more deeply in terms of models. In order to program a design process, a model of the process is needed.
