Model Models

A model model is a model of a model. When developers are deciding what should be modeled they are constructing a model model. If a model is an abstraction then a model model is an abstraction of a model. Happily not many people have to think about this. Suppose you wanted to model an object system in a relational database. Your model model would show how objects, methods and attributes would be encoded in relational tables.

Systems engineers do this when building modeling tools. Just something to think about.
