Model management is one of the important research areas in decision support systems (DSS). Similar to that in data management, the research activities in model management should include the representation of model base structures and design of model base systems. Object-oriented methods have been used for the representation of model base structures. Based on a proposed object-oriented framework, this paper presents the use of type rules and inheritance theory for the design of model base systems. Examples are used to illustrate that the proposed design theory can help to reduce redundancy and avoid inconsistency for the design of model base systems.
