The optimal design and permanent adaption of factories guarantees sustainable success and competitiveness in a global economy. Thus factory engineering is a key issue to be addressed. In order to support the engineering of factories a generic and extensible Reference Model for Factory Planning has been developed. The Reference Model is comprised of systemised planning phases and their corresponding planning activities. In this paper different concepts and languages to model the factory planning reference process during the Factory Life Cycle, are presented. Based on the requirement analysis, considering the functionalities of the existing modelling languages, a suitable graphical notation is selected. Furthermore the implementation in the phase of equipment and workplace planning is presented. The requirement of future enhancement of the graphical modelling notation is illustrated and a corresponding roadmap is introduced.
