A Resource Description concept aims to support rapid design and reconfiguration of modular plug-and-produce type production systems. The developed information models for resource description describe formally and comprehensively the capabilities, interfaces, executable capabilities, and other characteristics of production resources. The proposed information model produces an integrated container of the resource information, as an extended and detailed electronic data sheet, and it can be applied in several phases of system design and commissioning. This paper introduces, through a set of value propositions and use cases, how different stakeholders can use and benefit from the Resource Description concept.
