Abstract

Functional models are increasingly being used in industries, such as oil and gas, for decision making problems. However, the
results obtained from the models that decision makers rely on are dependent on whether the model of the system is suitable for the
specified purpose. Hence, it is desirable to check the consistency and suitableness before the model is applied in problem solving.
Consequently the questions of model verification and validation need to be addressed on a functional modeling background to develop a systematic methodology on a scientific basis to lead to a practically applicable procedure. The Multilevel Flow Modeling (MFM) methodology is adopted in the paper as a formalized qualitative functional modeling methodology for dynamic process systems. A procedure for a functional model validation is proposed. A simple engineering system, i.e. a central heating system is presented to illustrate the proposed functional model validation procedure.
