Tips for Constructing Models  (from VenSim) When constructing a Level and Rate diagram, consider what  variables accumulate over a period of time Another way to think about this is:  if time slowed down to zero for your system, what variables would  still be nonzero?  For example, in the system where you pour water into a glass,  the water contained in the glass is the Level. If you froze time,  the pouring (a Rate) would stop, but you would still see a  quantity of water in the glass (a Level) Once you know what levels you need, enter them first and then  connect the rates and auxiliaries
