Rapid responsiveness in terms of processing functions, production capacity and order dispatching is required from today's production systems. This paper introduces a capability-based matchmaking procedure, which supports rapid configuration and re-configuration of production systems. The approach relies on formal OWL-based descriptions of both product requirements and resource capabilities. The base algorithm for the matchmaking is introduced together with the required rules for combined capability calculation and capability matchmaking. The presented approach supports the system designer and reconfiguration planner by automatically suggesting possible resource alternatives for certain product requirements.
