We propose a first approach in the direction of a general framework for resource management in wireless sensor networks (WSN). The basic components of the approach are a model for WSNs and a task model. Based on these models, a first version of an algorithm for assigning tasks to a WSN is presented. The models and the algorithm are designed in such a way that an extension to more complex models is possible. Furthermore, the developed approach to solve the RM problem allows an easy adaptation, to fit more complex models. In this way, a flexible approach is achieved, which may form the base for many RM approaches. The possibilities and limitations of the presented approach are tested on randomly generated instances. The aim of these tests is to show that the chosen models and algorithm form a proper starting point to design RM tools.
