Overview of MIPS 
Model Hierarchy: Models can contain other models as parts, same or different kind as the parent model. This results in model hierarchy.
E.g. Hierarchical dataflow diagrams in Signal Processing domain.
Links: A port through which the model is connected to another part within the parent model
Aspects: Defines the kinds of parts that are visible in that aspect. The existence or visibility of a part within a particular aspect is determined by the modeling paradigm.
E.g. Signal flow and ‘states’ aspects for a Signal Processing paradigm
Attributes: Property of an object described textually. Objects can have multiple attributes. The modeling paradigm defines what attributes, range of values are to be present for the particular objects.
E.g. Datatype of parameters in a Signal Processing paradigm
Sets: Represent different states of a ‘dynamic system’. Is composed of almost the same parts either in ‘visible’ or ‘missing’ mode depending on the state of the system. When a particular set is activated, only objects belonging to that set are ‘visible’, the others being ‘dimmed out’.
