The paper presents our first research steps aiming at the development of a methodology for knowledge-based configuration of factories and technical processes. The complex task of configuration is firstly introduced and the need for embedding knowledge as an enabling technology is pointed out. The requirements analysis illustrated by a motivation scenario is followed by the analysis of state-of-the-art information and communication technologies and their particular applicability for the configuration of production facilities. The paper concludes with the selection of suitable enabling technologies and the roadmap of future activities.
