There is a common agreement between mathematical modelers that the validation stage is one of the most important ones in the model-building process. Unfortunately, there exists a gap between the general advices and the modeling practice.

To bridge this gap partially, the author introduces a model taxonomy which is important for the validation practice. On the basis of this taxonomy it would be possible to select the groups of models for which the given validation tools are appropriate. The review of existing ideas dealing with validation models is also presented.
