The specification of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) as software systems related to the technical process represents a challenge regarding interdisciplinary communication. In this paper, a modeling framework that integrates the different important views for MES specification by coupling their established modeling notations is presented. The main contribution of this framework is the integration of a technical system model, a production process model and an MES functional model with their interconnections and dependencies by a formal link model.
