Barbau et al. (2012) propsoed OntoSTEP that enables the translation ofthe STandard for the Exchange of Product Model Data (STEP) schema andits instances to an ontology and a set of knowledge graphs represented in theWeb Ontology Language (OWL). OntoSTEP-generated models can be inte-grated with any OWL models to enrich their semantics. However, the currentimplementation has several limitations in (1) supporting the latest ISO 10303implementation schemas and (2) generating various representation types de-pending on the purpose of use. We present an improved implementation ofOntoSTEP to overcome these limitations. In this paper, we demonstratethat the new implementation can successfully translate STEP schemas and instances in a faster and more flexible way, thus furthering the adoption ofthe full capabilities of ISO 10303.
