The advantages of graph notation are many, and this accounts for their popularity and wide usage. The disadvantage of graphs is that they have a very limited mechanism for deductive reasoning. The systems representation introduced later in this book complements directed graphs with the notations of set theory, logic and measurement theory, allowing the systems professional access to the deductive rules of these formal notations, while retaining the expressive power of the graph as means of communication with customers and lay users.

The representation of the referent is a portrayal of reality in the world of models. Modelling is an activity which creates the link between the world of reality and the world of models. 1: Modelling a referent When we observe reality and form a concept of it, we create its image in our mind. If we wish to record our mental image, if we want to register our observations about the referent, if we want to discuss it with others, if we need to solve its problems in a methodical and formal way rather than by trial and error, then we need to create an explicit representation of the referent.

A car as a referent may be modelled as a black box system if we consider its characteristics over-all, from the viewpoint of the driver. Such characteristics might include the make, colour, maximum velocity, petrol consumption, purchase price, and the like. From the viewpoint of the manufacturer or the garage mechanic the same car may also be represented as a structural system: an assembly of parts, such as the chassis, the engine, the suspension, the brakes, the. clutch, the steering wheel and other internal fittings, etc.
