Tracking assembly processes is a necessary prerequisite to provide assistance in smart factories. In this paper, we show how to track the construction of complex components. For this we employ formal task models as background knowledge and simple sensors like RFIDs. The background knowledge is converted into a probabilistic model that actually tracks the process. As a result, we are able to provide assistance in smart factories. We discuss the performance of the approach, as well as potential applications.
