To improve the modelling performance, one should either propose new modelling methodologies or make the best of existing models. In this paper, the study is concentrated on the latter solution, where a structure-free modelling paradigm is proposed to combine various modelling techniques in 'symbiosis' using a 'master fuzzy system'. This approach is shown to be able to include the advantages of different modelling techniques altogether by minimising efforts relating optimisation of final
