The author reviews methodologies and modelling tools which have been developed for use in manufacturing systems. The strengths and weaknesses of the different tools are discussed, and examples of applications are given. An understanding of general systems theory as identified by Checkland (1981) is assumed. The methodologies and modelling techniques discussed make the common assumption that systems concepts, such as organised interconnectedness and emergent properties, apply in the context of the problem domain. The modelling tools may be used to model business processes including: all the planning and control processes, process technology and management and administrative processes. Following the review of the methodologies and modelling techniques a practical guide in the form of a table is proposed for business processes
