In order to make performance indicators an useful instrument to support
	managerial decision making, there is need to thoroughly analyse the
	business context indicators are used in as well as their mutual dependencies.
	For this purpose, it is recommended to design indicator systems that
	do not only include dedicated specications of indicators, but that
	account for relevant relationships. In this paper, a DSML is proposed
	that enables the convenient design of consistent indicator systems
	at type level, which supports various kinds of analyses, and can
	serve as conceptual foundation for corresponding performance management
	systems, such as dashboard systems. Furthermore, indicator systems
	may also be used during run-time at the instance level to promote
	the distinguished interpretation of particular indicator values.
