Large-scale process simulation models are commonly created using 2D graphical user interfaces. Simulation data visualisation is typically done using textual monitors, symbol animations and colour coding. We propose an ontological approach for building and visualising 2D process models. An ontology-based approach using semantic networks for both of these tasks is presented. The key advantages of this approach are the unification of the data model (semantic graph), automation of modelling tasks by inference and synchronization between concepts of different ontologies via rule-based ontology mapping.
