In this paper, we will apply the concepts of pragmatic industrial modelling to the development of a real time drilling support tool. We develop requirements to such a modelling tool, regarding both input and output, model response times, and accuracy requirement. The selected application will next be the subject to more theoretical discussions on analyses, standards, technologies, design of the database, and the interface for the modelling framework On the selected pragmatic modelling case, we evaluate the proposed solutions and outline requirements for the realization of the described tool. We give a proposal of the architecture for such a system, and examples of analysis / modelling workflows, presented in pseudocode. We summarize the findings and discuss how this specific "pragmatism in industrial modelling" case should be concluded and prepared for further software/hardware implementation, reuse, sharing, and collaboration. Partial standardization of work processes (illustrated as workflows in pseudo-code), data, and metadata is a necessity for building more consistent and informative industrial models. It will answer to customer needs for relevant results, actual accuracy, and delivery speed, and will definitely pave a way towards a tool, which can enable an automated drilling process.
