41. Ontological Product Modeling for Collaborative Design
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 7/22/2010
Authors: Conrad E Bock, XuanFang Zha, Hyo-won Suh, Jae H. Lee
Abstract: This paper shows how to combine ontological and model-based techniques in languages that facilitate collaborative design exploration. The proposed approach uses ontology to capture alternative designs and incremental refinements that meet requireme ...

42. 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 ...

43. Ontology Formalisms: What is Appropriate for Different Applications?
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 10/6/2009
Author: Craig I Schlenoff
Abstract: Ontologies can take many forms. There are ontologies that are extremely formal (e.g., using first order logic), and there are ontologies that are much less formally defined (e.g., ontologies in the relational databases or dictionaries). Nonetheless, ...

44. 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 ...

45. 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, ...

46. Performance Evaluation of Robotic Knowledge Representation (PERK)
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 3/22/2012
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Sebti Foufou, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: In this paper, we explore some ways in which symbolic knowledge representations have been evaluated in the past and provide some thoughts on what should be considered when applying and evaluating these types of knowledge representations for real-time ...

47. Product Modeling Framework and Language for Behavior Evaluation
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 5/2/2010
Authors: Jae H. Lee, Steven J. Fenves, Conrad E Bock, Hyo Won Suh, Rachuri Rachuri, Xenia Fiorentini, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: Supporting different stakeholder viewpoints across the product s entire lifecycle requires semantic richness for representing product related information. This paper proposes a multi-layered product-modeling framework that enables stakeholders to def ...

48. Reasoning in Manufacturing Part-Part Examples with OWL 2
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7535
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 10/29/2008
Authors: Nenad Krdzavac, Conrad E Bock
Abstract: This report examines whether the Web Ontology Language 2 (OWL 2) is expressive enough for some common manufacturing examples involving relations between parts of composite or assembled objects (part-part relations). We specify the semantics of thes ...

49. Relating Taxonomies with Regulations
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 5/13/2008
Authors: Chin P. Cheng, Jiayi Pan, Gloria T Lau, Kincho H. Law, Albert W Jones
Abstract: Increasingly, taxonomies are being developed for a wide variety of industrial domains and specific applications within those domains. These taxonomies attempt to represent formally the vocabularies commonly used by domain practitioners.  These f ...

Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7729
Topic: Ontologies
Published: 9/30/2010
Authors: Evan K Wallace, Allison Barnard Feeney, David Leal
Abstract: The ISO subcommittee tasked with developing standards for industrial data, TC 184/SC 4, has recently undertaken an effort to define a new, more flexible architecture based on widely-used information technologies and standards with the goal of reducin ...
