In this paper, we will show how hierarchical task modeling can give beneficial support for the specification and validation of a production process in its early development stages. This will be done with respect to the growing challenges coming from the market environment. In particular, it is a substantial benefit to use an adequate modeling environment to be able to take specific customer requirements process during the production planning into account. For our methodology, we use Amboss, a task modeling environment designed for safety-critical socio-technical systems.
