41. 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 ...

42. Ontology-based Technologies - Technology Transfer from Bioinformatics?
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 11/5/2008
Author: Fabian M. Neuhaus
Abstract: In the call for paper for OIC 2008 the description of the conference contains the following optimistic outlook: New approaches are required to enable greater flexibility, precision, timeliness and automation of analysis in response to rapidly evolvin ...

43. 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 ...

44. 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 ...

45. An Ontology for the e-Kanban Business Process
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7404
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 4/1/2007
Authors: Edward J. Barkmeyer Jr., Boonserm Kulvatunyou
Abstract: Large automotive manufacturers, including automakers and the manufacturers of principal automotive subsystems, make their products in large volumes. This means that the demands on their suppliers are fairly predictable over a long term, but subject ...

46. A Validation Architecture for Advanced Interoperability Provisioning
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 8/1/2006
Authors: Nenad Ivezic, Edward J. Barkmeyer Jr., Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Albert W Jones, Pat Snack, Zuran Marjanovic, Hyunbo Cho
Abstract: We describe an architecture to validate new tools in support of interoperability provisioning processes that take place within industrial communities. We start from a best-practices standards development process where an industry community develops i ...

47. Feature Technology and Ontology for Embedded System Design and Development
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 8/1/2006
Authors: XuanFang Zha, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: In this paper, we present our recent effort on using a feature technology and ontology for embedded systems modeling and design. We present an overview of embedded system design and propose an object-oriented UML modeling approach to representing emb ...

48. The Evaluation of Ontologies
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 8/1/2006
Authors: Leo Obrst, Benjamin Ashpole, Werner Ceusters, Mahesh Mani, Steven R. Ray, Bradford Smith
Abstract: Recent years have seen rapid progress in the development of ontologies as semantic models intended to capture and represent aspects of the real world. There is, however, great variation in the quality of ontologies. If ontologies are to become progre ...
