Modelling - Mechanistic reductionism extended with holistic empirical components


We discuss the underlying aspects of our computational engineering suite, implement- ing application-specific reductionism. Our Process Modelling suite (ProMo) supports complex multi-discipline and multi-scale models using discipline-specific basic building blocks. An application-domain-specific ontology captures the involved disciplines and their respective basic entities being the smallest granulates in each field. Each basic en- tity is primarily equipped with a mechanistic mathematical input/output representation. We augment this mechanistic approach with a holistic component by allowing multiple definitions of these behaviour descriptions, thereby enabling empirical models. ProMo’s ontology reasoner handles the resulting multi-directed variable/equation graphs represent- ing the entity models. The discipline-related model components are linked together over two mechanisms depending on the nature of their interaction. The concept of ”tokens” provides the necessary abstraction, allowing for a network of networks description of multi-disciplinary models.
