The design of an automation work system involves important choices concerning the type of system process as well as the condition of the process. These are based on the requirements from the user. This work provides the development of configuration model for automating the design of work system. The model consists of the extraction and execution process of user requirements. It begins with the identification of the requirement statement. Once identified, the statement is extracted and sorted accordingly into process type, number of item count and condition of the process. Currently, the model considers simple sorting and basic assembly process. The model continues to the selection of system action and system component. At the end of the work, the user requirements are transformed into a set of system model and eventually provide the desired system specification. At this stage, the model is represented in a symbolic flow process.
