In modern assembly lines, humans and robots coexist and collaborate for the execution of complex tasks. The sequence and the assignment of tasks to suitable resources, constitute a technological challenge. For the collaboration of humans and robots, in a single assembly station, a common modelling language is required. This paper examines the way that resource capabilities of both humans and robots could be described, by the same modeling language, including common attributes for the various
