This paper briefly looks into the role and extent of mathematical modelling in the design and analysis of measurement systems, especially measurement sub-systems in the form of instruments and instrument elements. These fall within the classical domain of hard measurement (physical, strongly-defined measurement). It also examines the role and use of mathematical modelling in the area of soft measurement (non-physical, weakly defined measurement). These constitute two sub-sets of widely-defined measurement. Based on a number of examples it demonstrates the use of modern modelling techniques in the design and analysis of sub-systems in measurement technology. In doing so, it focuses on the scope and importance of physical modelling at a sub-system level, which ultimately contributes to modelling activities at a global systems level.
