The research presented in this paper proposes a concept for dynamic process management as part of an integrated approach to engineering process support. The theory of information management is the starting point for the development of a process management system based on evolution of information content. The use of an ontology enables the formalization of information content. Based on this ontology, transition relations and task definitions can be instantiated. A methodology for the generation of task networks is presented. From these networks, process models can be derived in the form of task chains.
