Continuous market changes has leading to a new manufacturing paradigms where the common denominator is the rapid changeover of hardware components for the adjustment of production capacity and functionality. Hardware components for final solutions have been receiving more attention than software components for control. Function blocks from the standard IEC 61499 could offer a viable solution for the encapsulation of algorithms for further distribution. Nevertheless, still are missing IT solutions for automatic discover and composition of function block applications. This works describes one of the stages that will allow searching and therefore automatic discovery of function blocks and composition of applications.
