In this paper we describe our approach to modelling dynamic systems behaviour and its application to an industrial environment. A complete programming environment is described through an account of the rationale and modus operandi of the system. Our objective is to help managers, designers, engineers and software developers to understand dynamic systems behaviour through modelling. Examples of systems modelling are given and an industrial application of the programming environment for automatic food handling involving machine vision, virtual sensors and robot manipulation control is described.
