Re: describing a manufacturing process with classes put into
chronological order by protege
As far as I understand your question, I suppose you need to insert object properties like isPredecessorOf and isSuccessorOf to connect the process steps just like in a network planning.
I think you also need to define other properties like they are used in workflow management (and/or Business Process Management) like joins and splits, because of the overlaps you mention in your question. So you have to define conditional properties as well.
Quite an exercise, I fear.

OWL doesn't provide ordering operators. I think you can describe a partial ordering by defining your own "before" object property.
With best regards,
