Reference modeling is located in a field of conflict between research and practice. Despite the array of theoretical concepts there is still a deficit in knowledge about the use and problems inherent in the implementation of reference models. Accordingly, in the past years the supply-sided development of reference models predominant in the science world has distanced itself from their demand-sided use in business and administration. This contribution will analyze the causes of these problems and present a solution in the form of an integrative approach to computer-supported management of re¬fe¬rence ¬mo¬dels. The task to be carried out with this solution approach will be concretized using data structures and a system architecture and then, prototypically implemented in the form of a reference model management system.
