31. The Semantics of Modules in Common Logic
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 1/20/2010
Author: Fabian M. Neuhaus
Abstract: Common Logic (CL) is an ISO standard that specifies a family of knowledge representation languages. The function of modules within CL is to support local context with a local domains of discourse. Modules play a crucial role since they enable use ...

32. Ontological Product Modeling for Collaborative Design
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7643
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 10/30/2009
Authors: Conrad E Bock, XuanFang Zha, Hyo Won Suh, Jae H. Lee
Abstract: This paper presents a product modeling language for collaborative design that has the benefits of ontology and expanded capabilities in conventional product modeling. The proposed approach uses ontology to increase flexibility and accuracy in combini ...

33. Formal Representation of Product Design Specifications for Validating Product Designs
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7626
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 8/27/2009
Authors: Alex Weissman, Satyandra K. Gupta, Xenia Fiorentini, Sudarsan Rachuri, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: Large scale distributed design projects increasingly result in designs that do not fully conform to the stated design goals or specifications. Hence, there is a need to validate these designs against various requirements. For projects with a large se ...

34. Towards a Method for Harmonizing Information Standards
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 8/19/2009
Authors: Xenia Fiorentini, Sudarsan Rachuri, Steven R. Ray, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: Designers and engineers use various engineering authoring tools, such as CAD, CAE, and PDM,, to generate information objects (engineering objects). On the business side, enterprise level business process modelers use various business authoring tools, ...

35. OntoSTEP: OWL-DL Ontology for STEP
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7561
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 5/4/2009
Authors: Sylvere Ismael Krima, Raphael R. Barbau, Xenia Fiorentini, Sudarsan Rachuri, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: The Standard for the Exchange of Product model data (STEP) [1] contains product information mainly related to geometry. The modeling language used to develop this standard, EXPRESS, does not have logical formalism that will enable rigorous semantic ...

37. An Evaluation of Description Logic for the Development of Product Models
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 11/10/2008
Authors: Xenia Fiorentini, Sudarsan Rachuri, Hyo Won Suh, Jae H. Lee, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: The languages and logical formalisms developed by information scientists and logicians concentrate on the theory of languages and logical theorem proving. These languages, when used by domain experts to represent their domain of discourse, most often ...

39. An Ontology for Assembly Representation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7436
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 7/1/2007
Authors: Xenia Fiorentini, Iacopo Gambino, V.C. Liang, Sebti Foufou, Sudarsan Rachuri, Mahesh Mani, Conrad E Bock
Abstract: Mechanical assemblies are systems composed of modules that are either subassemblies or parts. Traditionally an assembly information model contains information regarding parts, their relationships, and its form. But it is important that the model also ...

40. A Probabilistic Framework for Semantic Similarity and Ontology Mapping
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 4/1/2007
Authors: Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Nenad Ivezic, Albert W Jones, Yun Peng, Zhongli Ding, Rong Pan, Yang Yu, Hyunbo Cho
Abstract: We propose a probabilistic framework to address uncertainty in ontology-based semantic integration and interopera-tion. This framework consists of three main components: 1) BayesOWL that translates an OWL ontology to a Bayes-ian network, 2) SLBN (Sem ...
