Wireless system design on the physical layer is usually evaluated using comprehensive channel models. However, there is still a lack of publicly available stochastic channel models tailored to industrial use cases, which are recently considered more frequently. This paper presents the derivation of such a channel model for the 5 GHz ISM band and its parametrization. The frequency-selective behaviour is modeled by the Saleh-Valenzuela model. Based on a measurement campaign, the parameters of this model for a factory environment are determined and published the first time for the 5 GHz ISM band. Spatial correlation is modeled by the Kronecker model. The temporal variation of the channel is based on a theoretically derived Doppler spectrum assuming Laplacian distributed angle of arrivals. In addition to the description of the model components, key issues and common mistakes while constructing a channel model for industrial applications are discussed in order to advance the design and the deployment of future wireless industrial communications systems. The derived channel model is used in IEEE 802.11ax link layer simulations. It is shown that for industrial use cases specially tailored channel models are needed.
