1. A system construction support apparatus that supports generation of a system configuration diagram that simulates a system configured from apparatuses, the system construction support apparatus comprising:
a memory that stores apparatus information that is set in an apparatus or is associated with the apparatus and comprises character strings associated with device numbers;
a processor that extracts the character strings included in the apparatus information and that are associated with the device numbers, organizes the extracted character strings into an entry for each device based on a respective device number from among the device numbers corresponding to each of the character strings, and generates a list of character strings;
a display that displays the generated list of the character strings; and
an input interface that receives an input selecting one of the character strings displayed in the list for each entry,
wherein the processor, in response to the input received via the input interface, registers the selected character string as a label of the device corresponding to the character string.
