Procedural knowledge is used by experts for complex system control. In this article, the notion of a complex system is taken in a broad sense. It might be a patient cured by a physician specialist, a biotechnological device, a department of some business enterprise etc. The GLIF model was designed in collaboration of American universities for the formalization of medical guidelines, but it can be used for formal representation of any procedural knowledge. The main objective of the GLIF model was to enable computer processing and comparing of medical guidelines. In this, article also a more sophisticated use of procedural knowledge representation by the means of the GLIF model is proposed. The provided data about expert actions are stored into the database, the formalized knowledge represented by the GLIF model can be used for building up sophisticated reminder systems that warn the user if he decides to make an impropriate action. Different kinds of warnings in the reminder system are proposed and their properties are discussed. At the end, also the possibility of using the GLIF model for decision support is discussed.Keywords:
