The XPRESS approach turns simple machines and automation elements into "Manufactrons", which are self-standing and providing expertise in order to deal with a multitude of variations. These variations are introduced by preceding process steps, by different materials or by fast changing product designs. In order to cope with constantly changing conditions, the XPRESS concept foresees a well-defined, but open XML document called Task Description Document for interfacing between all levels of the XPRESS hierarchy.
Each Task Description Document complies to this well-defined specification; the goal is to describe a manufacturing task by a set of always understandable knowledge items rather than providing recipe values, which are specific to a single machine.
