modelability

noun; derivation
The potential for an object or group of objects to be represented in a mathematical model
 
Invented specifically during an internship at the National Renewable energy laboratory to describe what percent of commercial buildings in a region could be accurately modeled in building energy modeling software. Adding –able to words in order to describe a potential for characterization is not uncommon, as seen in established words like “edible” and “collectable”.
Etymology : From “model” + “able” + “ity”, “model” in the sense of a mathematical model, “able” meaning capability or potential, and “ity” as a noun-forming morpheme indicating characterization of another object.
Source : “On average, the modelability of commercial buildings in Colorado counties is higher than that of commercial buildings in Nevada.” (June 2016, conversation with mentor at National Renewable Energy Labs internship)
