An Analysis of the IOF Architecture a Systems Integration Perspective
Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Minchul Lee, Megan Katsumi
The Industrial Ontology Foundry (IOF) describes its ontology architecture in the its charter wherein different types of ontologies are identified. These types ontologies are described at high-level in the charter. Their relationships and purposes are not clear. This research performed literature review and use case analyses with the aim to clarify the meaning of these types of ontologies. The use case analyzes the purpose of these types of ontologies from the perspective of enabling systems interoperability. The research was presented at the IOF face-to-face meeting on December 4, 2019; the conclusion included in this paper is the result of discussions at the meeting.
