AutomationML (Automation Markup Language) is an XML based data format for the exchange of plant engineering information. Its mission is to interconnect engineering tools of different disciplines, e.g. process, mechanical or control engineering. AutomationML enables the vendor independent storage of interlinked engineering data that is usually distributed into different engineering tools. This enables a wide range of future tool functionality not available and not possible today. For this, AutomationML defines a number of extended concepts for different engineering aspects. One of them is the process-resource-product concept which was introduced with version 1.1 and published at the Hannover trade fair 2009. This paper explains this concept by means of an industrial example.
