Modelling (and hence metamodelling as a special kind of modelling) focusses on linking symbolic representations to elements within a specific part of reality. For most software engineering models, we delimit this reality as the ‘system under study’ or SUS for short, while recognising that, while Hesse (2006) argues against its use, here we use the word system in a generic sense to mean the ‘original’ or ‘target’ of our modelling exercise. This target may be (a part of) reality or an artificial system (e.g. conceptual or design models)
