Abstract: With the increasing demand of complex problem processing in the network information environment, the research and application of the Wuli-Shili-Renli methodology (WSR) has been paid more attention. However, the three basic concepts of Wuli-Shili-Renli have not been fully modeled and formally expressed, which limits their wider application to a certain extent. This paper makes a comparative analysis of WSR and Extenics, which are both established by Chinese scholars and related to system methodology. The intention and extension of the three basic concepts of Wuli, Shili and Renli are compared and defined with matter element, affair element and relation element of basic element theory in Extenics. Then the differences and cross complementarity between them is demonstrated. On this basis, we put forward the basic element expression method of Wuli, Shili and Renli in WSR. Finally, we present the necessity of constructing the Shili knowledge graph in the big data environment and give a Shili model for example, and propose the future cross-research direction of WSR and Extenics.

Key words: WSR, Extenics, basic element theory, system engineering, knowledge graph of Shili
