Abstract

Planning processes in civil engineering are highly complex and characterised by a great number of participants and heterogeneous, distributed planning resources in terms of software methods, models and means of communication. The interaction, communication and information exchange between planning participants must be organised in computer networks. This paper presents an integrative process model to support cooperation in distributed planning processes in civil engineering, taking fire protection planning as an example. Firstly, the integrative process model consists of Petri-Nets to model the processes and to support the coordination between the participants during the planning process. Secondly, it consists of agents providing resources und methods to process the technical information within the modelled processes. Thirdly, Petri-Nets are used to model the agent migration and the agent interaction.
