For the design of work and knowledge systems it is today common to revert to enterprise modeling methods. These methods not only support the representation and analysis of complex interactions between technical services and human actors. The resulting models also provide value through acting as knowledge bases themselves. Thereby, the formalization of modeling methods is essential to unambiguously define their structure, behavior, and semantics, and enable an intersubjective understanding and
