Decision models play an important role in decision making and supporting model building is one of the most important functions of model management in decision support systems. As concepts at different abstract levels have to be used in the process of model building, it has been recognized as a key research topic about how to get these concepts represented in a coherent way. In this paper, a model building framework will be proposed which integrate object-oriented analysis and action logic as the representation tool. This model building framework can provide representations for concepts at different abstract levels, and describe the abstracting process of decision models from decision situations or problems represented in lower abstract level concepts.
