For the modeling of business processes the Business Model and Notation (BPMN) 2.0 can be used. To examine the comprehension of BPMN models studies are conducted. To facilitate the preparation of the studies a tool, the so called BPMN Generator, for the automatically generation of BPMN models has been designed and implemented. The BPMN models generated from the BPMN-Generator only include a small subset of elements defined in the BPMN 2.0 standard. However, some studies require more complex BPMN models. Accordingly, in the course of this thesis, the BPMN-Generator is expanded to also support the BPMN elements Pools and Lanes. For the studies to be successful, it is essential that the generated models comply with the BPMN standard. This thesis solves this problem by designing and implementing an additional component, which checks the BPMN models after the generation to conform with the BPMN 2.0 standard and shows an error screen, if the model is invalid.
