A model is a physical, conceptual, or mathematical representation of a real phenomenon. Scientific models are used to explain and predict the behavior of real objects or systems and are applied in a variety of scientific disciplines (Sampieri et al. in Metodologia de la Investigación. McGraw-Hill Inc. 2006, [1]). The objectives of a model include three aspects: (1) to facilitate understanding by eliminating unnecessary components; (2) to aid in decision-making by simulating what-if scenarios; and (3) founded on past observations, to explain, control, and predict events.
