Conceptual Modelling Explanation

Hi Amrit, a possible and simple explanation to what a conceptual model is that it is a method used for representing the relationship between the concepts (entities). In this way the conceptual models can analyse the possible influences that the concepts can have on each other, leading to a better understanding of the problem situation. I am not really sure because I also had problems with understanding it when reading this article. Hope someone can comment on this whether it's right or not, or give a better explanation of conceptual model than mine :)

Conceptual Model

A conceptual model is a model of a concept. The concept is what you have defined in your root definition, and the conceptual model is the set of activities and the relationships between them that would have to take place if the concept defined in the root definition were to exist. In other words, the conceptual model represents what a "system" would have to do, to be the system defined in the root definition.
