Abstract. While factors impacting process model comprehension are relatively well understood by now, little is know about process model creation and factors impacting process model quality. This paper proposes a research model to investigate the influence of cognitive abilities and a continuous psycho-physiological measure of task imposed cognitive load of process model designers on process model quality. The proposed research will not only contribute a better understanding of process model creation, but bears significant potential for improving existing modeling notations as well as for developing process modeling environments.
