1. Toward Manufacturing System Composability Analysis: A Use Case Scenario
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 9/20/2014
Authors: Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Evan K Wallace, Nenad Ivezic, Yunsu Lee
Abstract: One of the characteristics of a smart manufacturing system is the ability to quickly adapt to new and changing requirements. This implies that software and hardware components of the manufacturing system need to be easily composed and recomposed. In ...

2. AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO INFORMATION MODELING FOR THE SUSTAINABLE DESIGN OF PRODUCTS
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 5/19/2014
Authors: Paul W Witherell, Douglas Eddy, Ian Grosse, Sundar Krishnamurty, Jack Wileden, Kemper Lewis
Abstract: The design of more sustainable products can be best accomplished in a tradeoff-based design process that methodically handles conflicting objectives. Such conflicts are often seen between, environmental impact, cost, and product performance. To supp ...

3. Ontological Conceptualization Based on Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS)
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 5/19/2014
Authors: Nenad Ivezic, Ameri Farhad, Kaikhah Khosrow, Boonserm Kulvatunyou
Abstract: In this paper, a thesaurus-based methodology is proposed for systematic ontological conceptualization in the manufacturing domain. The methodology has three main phases, namely, thesaurus development, thesaurus evaluation, and thesaurus conversion. A ...

4. A Simulated Sensor-based Approach for Kit Building Applications
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 12/20/2013
Authors: Zeid Kootbally, Craig I Schlenoff, Theodore J Weisman, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Anthony Pietromartire
Abstract: Kit building or kitting is a process in which individually separate but related items are grouped, packaged, and supplied together as one unit (kit). This paper describes advances in developing sensing/control and parts detection technologies enablin ...

5. TOWARDS THE SYNTHESIS OF PRODUCT KNOWLEDGE ACROSS THE LIFECYCLE
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 11/21/2013
Authors: Paul W Witherell, Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Rachuri Rachuri
Abstract: Product lifecycle management is an important aspect of today‰s industry, as it serves to facilitate information exchange and management between most, if not all, stages of a product‰s existence. As exchanged product information is inevitably subject ...

6. A Methodology for Handling Standards Terminology for Sustainable Manufacturing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7965
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 10/30/2013
Authors: Anantha Narayanan Narayanan, David Jacques Antoine Lechevalier, Katherine C Morris, Rachuri Rachuri
Abstract: In order to develop the discipline of sustainable manufacturing, the language of discourse needs to be properly and clearly communicated, for both manufacturers and consumers. As a result a range of information standards that define the needed te ...

7. A Literature Review of Sensor Ontologies for Manufacturing Applications
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 10/23/2013
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Tsai Hong Hong, Roger D. Eastman
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to review existing sensor and sensor network ontologies to understand whether they can be reused as a basis for a manufacturing perception sensor ontology, or if the existing ontologies hold lessons for the development of ...

8. An Integrated Approach to Information Modeling for the Sustainable Design of Products
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 8/7/2013
Authors: Paul W Witherell, Douglas Eddy, Ian Grosse, Sundar Krishnamurty
Abstract: The design process for more sustainable products can be best accomplished in a tradeoff-based design process that can methodically handle conflicting objectives, such as, environmental impact, cost, and product performance. Also, regulations, as repr ...

9. NIST Ontological Visualization Interface for Standards: User‰s Guide
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7945
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 8/1/2013
Authors: David Jacques Antoine Lechevalier, Anantha Narayanan Narayanan, Katherine C Morris, Sean Reidy, Rachuri Rachuri
Abstract: The NIST Ontological Visualization Interface for Standards (NOVIS) was developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to provide an interactive visual interface to the terminology used in a variety of standards related to sust ...

10. Inferring Intention Through State Representations in Cooperative Human-Robot Environments
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 6/7/2013
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Anthony Pietromartire, Zeid Kootbally, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Sebti Foufou
Abstract: In this paper, we describe a novel approach for inferring intention during cooperative human-robot activities through the representation and ordering of state information. State relationships are represented by a combination of spatial relationships ...
