The Resource Component is the Component type used to model and represent a particular real or formal resource. A Resource is defined by a set of Skills, to each of which are given concrete values for the Skill's attributes. The Resource Component itself does not yet represent a concrete instance of a resource, but instead serves as a pattern for those instances. Ressources can be managed by expecco automatically. This feature can be used to synchronize/lock requests in parallel subsequences and/or synchronize access to real devices.
The correlation between Skills, Ressources and Inventory is explained in the documentation of the skill element.
