51. 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 ...

52. 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 ...

53. Interprocess Communication in the Process Specification Language
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7348
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 10/1/2006
Author: Conrad E Bock
Abstract: Interprocess communication is ubiquitous in modern computing, appearing most commonly as inputs, outputs, and messaging. This paper formalizes interprocess communication based on the involvement of entities in a process, and how processes determine ...

54. Part-part Relations in an RDF/S and OWL Extension
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 9/1/2006
Author: Conrad E Bock
Abstract: This describes an extension to the Resource Description Framework/Schema (RDF/S) to specify relations between parts of the same whole (composite structure). For example, the relation between engine and wheels in a car applies in each individual car, ...

55. 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 ...

56. 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 ...

57. 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 ...

58. Towards a Formal Representation of Driving Behaviors
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 10/28/2002
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Michael Gruninger
Abstract: To successfully perform their required tasks, intelligent information agents require accurate and meaningful communication and integration among other agents and information resources. However, the applications and infrastructure of information techn ...

59. An Analysis of Existing Ontological Systems for Applications in Manufacturing
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Peter O Denno, Robert W Ivester, Simon Szykman, Don E Libes
Abstract: The objective of this work described in this paper is to move closer to the ultimate goal of seamless system integration using the principle behind ontological engineering to unambiguously define domain-specific concepts. Current integration efforts ...

60. Using Process Requirements as the Basis for the Creation and Evaluation of Process Ontologies for Enterprise Modeling
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 9/1/1997
Authors: Michael Gruninger, Craig I Schlenoff, Amy Knutilla, Steven R. Ray
Abstract: This paper addresses the issue of process ontology integration using a complete set of process information requirements as its basis.  The goals of the paper are: (1)to give an overview of the requirements necessary to represent  manufacturing proces ...
