summary The recent advances in polymer-based components for construction applications lead to additional opportunities for replacing conventional structural forms with fibre-reinforced composite components. Although fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP) have favorable characteristics that make FRP composite very competitive, these materials have not yet been exploited. The initial costs of components and complex manufacturing processes for composite components in construction are delaying the extended application of FRP. Manufacturing is currently based on inefficient manual on-site processes. To increase the degree of industrialisation of the construction process of FRP components a comprehensive process analysis and reengineering is required. This work presents the use of business process modelling techniques to provide the flexibility and adaptability for creation and administration of process patterns in systematic reuse and adaptation. Conceptual model based on flowcharts of bridge components on-site installation is defined. Mapping from conceptual model to business process modelling notation (BPMN) presented to support the customisation of the process model according to the certain project and site contexts and constraints.
