Process models and consequently business process modelling languages get more and more complex. This is especially true for the event-driven process chain (EPC), since the absence of a clearly defined standard renders EPC modelling difficult. On top, modelling itself is no trivial task. To address this issue, several frameworks and guidelines have emerged to support process modelling. However, most of them remain at a generic level. Currently, there is no user support with respect to the actual modelling process that is specific to the EPC language. To address these needs, the paper applies a design-oriented research approach and proposes a systematic procedure model specifically tailored towards EPC mod-elling as current outcome of this research in progress. We argue that the procedure model facilitates the modelling process and thus has the potential to increase model quality.
