    In this paper we describe feature based modelling principles for specifying manufacturing data in product models.We are targeting to support robotized surface treatment application by introducing data describing the surface treatment paths (and other task attributes) into the product models.In so called holonic manufacturing systems the autonomy of the system entities is an essential feature, and by proparing the manufacturing data already into the product model we can reduce the complexity of the planning problem which the robot system has to face.We expect, that this is a necessary and adequate step to establish the autonomy for the robots.Preliminary tests to implement the feature models look very promising.
