Empirical studies are a prerequisite for creating meaningful models of work processes, which can be used to analyze, improve, and automate design processes. In this contribution, a modeling procedure is presented, which comprises the creation of semi-formal models of design processes, their analysis and improvement, and finally the formalization of the models as a prerequisite for the implementation of supportive software tools. Several modeling languages have been created for representing design processes, including the C3 language for participative modeling of design processes on a semi-formal level and a Process Ontology for the formal representation of design processes.
