This paper describes research identifying information models to facilitate process specification and to transfer this information to process control. A conceptual schema is introduced as a means to bridge the gap between process planning requirements and production control requirements. The result is a process specification language based on directed graph notation which allows full specification of parallel activities, event synchronization, alternative processes, resource management, and task decomposition.
