Resource Types are added to steps to indicate material flow and transformations in a process. To add a Resource Type to a step, click the + icon next to "Input/Output Overview":
Each Resource Type represents the type of resource used in a step. In the "Riffyn: Fermentation" public process, Spectrophotometer is a Resource Type meaning that a spectrophotometer is used in a process. The specific spectrophotometer used (the resource) is specified in measure mode.
Resource Types can also be added to steps by:
- Connecting steps
- Using "Add Input/Output" on an existing step
- Using "Copy to Input/Output" on an existing step
- Using "Add step before/after" on an existing Resource Type
