I'm working as IT Manager in manufacturing Company which Expanded to have four factories in Middle East in the previous years, Most of my project was to implement JDE Finance & distribution modules in our new Factories.
I submit my PMP application but they reply to me your credential application requires your attention‏, and I must revise my project description, now I update it to this
Project objective: implement JDE Finance &distribution Modules
Task: leading & directing the processes of
1-planning: gathering the required data from concerned departments document it, develop schedule

To me this looks like a good project description that shows your responsibilities. You should be able to use the same general format and describe all your projects. I like it that you zoom in on the various process groups (initiating, planning, executing, M&C, closing). Don't forget that each project is different, so you may have done specific actions in one project but not the other. I'd list those specific activities to show that you aren't just copy/pasting but that you are actually putting thought into the description.

However... does the size of the text fit? I remember that I had to shorten my project descriptions considerably because it didn't fit into the online fields. So go ahead and paste your text into the field and see if you can save it. If it is too long then you need to shorten it.
