I want to create attributes which can be used as filter.

eg: there are three attributes model-number, width, aspect ratio.

When I choose a particular option from model-number, the width and aspect ratio of that model-number should be available to select from the width and aspect ratio attribute's dropdown.

Create attributes in the admin under Catalog->Attributes->Manage Attributes.

While creating them set the value Use In Layered Navigation as Filterable (with results). Once this is done, you will have to simply use ajax calls to update data in width and aspect ratio when the user changes model-number. You will have to use onchange function in your js and make controllers to fetch the data.
