Abstract

The planning processes in Civil Engineering have specific aspects compared to the design-, construction- and maintenance processes in other industry domains: In opposition to industrial production processes, Civil Engineering always deals with unique structures. Planning is characterized by a high degree of specialization and a great division of work. Planning participants operate in legally independent and temporarily and physically distributed organizations. They have to co-operate and communicate in a heterogeneous planning environment. In order to develop appropriate methods and tools for the process modeling in Civil Engineering, the specialization and the distribution are important aspects that have to be considered. This paper presents a new approach to better coordinate the planning processes based on a generic process model, which uses semantic information within the theoretical background of Coloured Petri Nets. Planning information is represented in metainformation and is linked to the process model, so that it can be accessed to support decisions. The approach uses process model patterns which are predefined for each construction element. They match a general formalism and are compatible to each other. The process model can thus be adapted to the proceeding planning process and meets the requirements of the dynamic change. The contribution gives an overview on the approach to handle the distributed process modeling in Civil Engineering for cooperation purposes and shows the pilot-implementation.
