Abstract: Due to necessary specifications of manifold co-ordination for managing resource interdependencies and corresponding control data flows the design of Petri Nets (here is referred to P/T Nets) describing industrial processes tend to generate considerably high complexity itself. With regard to economic efficiency of process modeling and simulation studies it is essential to cope with this complexity on a systematic basis. The paper will take up this problem, which has rarely been regarded so far. Three major mutually dependent topics are focused on, and are applied in a case study: View-oriented phases of the model construction, the use of model components and the application of the Guidelines of Modeling (GoM).

Keywords: Construction, Industrial Processes, Guidelines of Modeling, Procedure Model, Model Components, Conventions.
