Modeling is the process of creating an image of reality or upcoming reality. The model is created in order before it starts to make implementation of the subject, try to see if he could work or looking for optimal solutions. The aim is to cut costs and more effective work even later changes.

Modeling is used as a basis for simulation. There is prepared the required states or expected conditions. Preventively to reveal possible errors, risks, malfunction, etc.

  • text

„Rather than creating piles of documentation, it is better to draw a single scheme or picture.“ more >>

And not just ISO, AS, OHSAS, CMMI  … but other standards, too, want us to describe what we do and how we do it. Most quality people and managers just produce pages of text which pile on the desk. Writing down a sentence is fairly easy. However, the sentence alone does not matter. What matters here is that people understand that sentence and use it in practice. Standards do not tell us how to describe our management system, though. Frankly, times are hasty and people have no time for reading piles of paper. They are bombarded by information from all sides. Besides, reading through a long document, they do not remember what was at the beginning. A picture or a scheme is faster to read and easier to remember. What if the system was created as an interactive model of schemes, pictures and supplementary text. Try to make out how.
