To fulfill the promises of Augmented Reality (AR) in the manufacturing and maintenance industry, the development of AR application has to become faster, simpler and cheaper. Since typical AR applications make use of basic functionality like reading markers and displaying simple overlays, a clever combination of such basic building blocks would ease the development of complex AR applications. In this paper, we present a distributed architecture for creating and managing basic AR services, e.g. for information management, user interaction, and documentation. This way, complex AR processes can be orchestrated from those services for being used in different application domains.
