In general, models are representation of artefacts, or situations, that are developed for a prescribed purpose. It can also be used to predict or analyze properties of the system that need not be explicitly represented in the model. The desires of the user of a modelling system are always limited by the availability of techniques permitting these desires to be met. To alleviate the difficulties associated with this, a methodology is required to guide the user to the best model and simulation technique to meet his needs. The construction of such a methodology for the classification of existing techniques in the construction of a model is presented in this paper.
