Noindent Process modeling is an important task during many process engineering activities ranging from steady-state simulation to control system design and implementation. The demand for models of varying detail is expected to steadily increase in the future due to advances in model-based process engineering methodologies. Computer assistance to support the development and implementation of adequate and transparent models is indispensable to minimize the engineering effort. Established equation-oriented as well as block-oriented approaches show significant limitations which probably can only be overcome if novel modeling paradigms are developped and implemented as software-tools. Some aspects of an advanced framework for computer-aided modeling are discussed in this contribution.
