The ReCaM approach towards the design and reconfiguration of production system is grounded on a capability-based system configuration method that considers mechatronic objects and the adaptation of their capabilities based on workpiece requirements. This approach facilitates the automatic matching between workpiece requirements and resource capabilities, and provides the basis for the auto-programming of the mechatronic objects for required tasks.
A new video describing the capability modelling and matchmaking approach is found below.
The information models needed for the matchmaking can be found in this link: http://resourcedescription.tut.fi
