The title and content of the present article seem to be thematically archaic, but the present knowledge about modelling as a tool for problem-solving is incredibly miserable; therefore, actually, the article is up to date. There are many individuals who are caught off by the question what exactly is, in that sense, the real essence of modelling, even though some of them write about it, and even teach it. In fact, the answer can be found in already the 27-year-old publication "Computational models in engineering practice" by the two authors from Brno. Three years ago, another publication "Systems Methodology" appeared in Brno (Janicek, 2014); it discusses modelling in terms of systems approach. These authors from Brno also published the book "Expert Engineering in systems approach", which is also dedicated to solving the problems by modelling. Literature sources thus exist; however, reading is not very popular, especially as for Czech subject-field books. Nevertheless, publications from the West do not always guarantee the quality of information and knowledge. Therefore, this article recapitulates the essence of modelling, its graphic display, types of modelling and terminology of modelling in Czech and English equivalents.
