||A current research project within the North American Precast Concrete Industryaims to integrate information both within precast producer companies and betweenthe companies and their suppliers, consultants, contractors, and clients. The firststep was to undertake a process modeling study of the activities performed withineach consortium company, so as to form the basis for the software specification andlater data model.Existing process modeling methods and tools were considered . They do notsupport:· extraction of information used in the activities,· analytical validation of the process model and its information flows,· comparison of models collected from separate companies across an industrysector,· effective use of process model information in deriving a product model.To these ends, we developed an analytic modeling methodology, and implemented anew tool for its use.
