Due to severe global competition, the project management process for one-of-a-kind production must aim for better risk management and higher efficiency. Despite being critical in order to forecast the duration of logistics processes, intra-enterprise knowledge, historical data from past projects as well as simulation models are not sufficiently utilized in today´s practices. To improve the project planning for one-of-a-kind production, a systematic modelling concept and a technical solution approach are developed, which are based on logistics reference processes and an ontology, as a major part of the overall systematic. This paper focuses on the development of the basic structure of the ontology. A use case applies the ontology within a project management toolset to highlight the potentials for process duration forecasting in project management.
