The central idea in reference modeling is the reutilization of the business knowledge contained in reference models for the construction of specific information models. The orientation on the technical content of a reference model can increase the efficiency of processes in business engineering projects. Despite this, the use of reference models in the field of business engineering has not established itself in practice. This is due to the particular field of conflict between research and practice, in which reference modeling is at home.
