This paper deals with the concept of a control architecture for robot cells that enables Plug'n'Produce according to Plug'n'Play in the office world. To achieve this, a software module called "Interconnector Module" takes as input descriptions of devices and processes. These descriptions are then automatically evaluated in order to offer the user commands to use the functionality of the robot cell in its current setup. The evaluation consists of several steps that are processed in different sub-modules of the Interconnector Module. In this paper the concept of this Interconnector Module is introduced.
