This paper presents an approach to minimize the problem of reduced functional flexibility in the complex industrial systems, where they are bought as a whole package or module, quite expensive, even though they are not used at all or ab notjit the enterprise S needs completely. The approach is based on the idea of a dynamic and intelligent plugging of software components. This plugging will occur only when the components functionalities are effectively needed, adapted to the current computing
