September 8, 2019
Nenad Ivezic, Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Elena Jelisic, Nenad Anicic, Zoran Marjanovic
While necessary for a successful integration of enterprise services and applications, use of message standards is a complex activity fraught with issues. An innovative approach and a software tool that make use of business context have been developed to

A Two-Tiered Database Design Based on Core Components Methodology

September 8, 2019
Nenad Ivezic, Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Elena Jelisic, Marija Jankovic, Zoran Marjanovic
The number of Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, and cloud service implemen-tations are growing rapidly. In the resulting, emerging, cross-industry, coop-erative environments, a common understanding of message standards will be necessary to enable better

Design-for-Cost – An Approach for Distributed Manufacturing Cost Estimation

September 2, 2019
Minchul Lee, Boonserm Kulvatunyou
Researches have shown that design changes cost more in later stages of product development. Therefore, companies adopt Design-for-X methods to optimize product designs from many aspects in the early design stage. Despite such efforts, they often encounter

Modeling a Supply Chain Reference Ontology Based on a Top-Level Ontology

August 19, 2019
Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Farhad Ameri
Several ontologies have been introduced in the domain of supply chain over the past decade with the promise of enabling a true supply chain interoperability. However, the existing supply chain ontologies have several gaps with respect to completeness

This report summarizes the results from the 2018 NIST/OAGi Workshop: Enabling Composable Service-Oriented Manufacturing Systems, which was held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology campus in Gaithersburg, MD, on April 23-24, 2018. This was

The Industrial Ontologies Foundry Proof-of-Concept Project

August 26, 2018
Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Evan K. Wallace, Dimitris Kiritsis, Barry Smith, Chris Will
The current industrial revolution is said to be driven by the digitization of manu-facturing that exploits connected information across all aspects of manufacturing. Standards have been recognized as an important enabler. Ontology is the next generation

Towards a Platform for Smart Manufacturing Improvement Planning

August 20, 2018
Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Sangsu Choi, Thorsten Wuest
The manufacturing industry is transitioning towards smart manufacturing systems (SMS). Small and medium size manufacturers (SMMs) are particularly be-hind in this transition, plagued by lack of knowledge and resources. Several smart manufacturing

Business Process Context for Message Standards

September 7, 2017
Nenad Ivezic, Miroslav Ljubicic, Marija Jankovic, Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Scott Nieman, Garret Minakawa
Despite unrelenting increase in complexity of message standards for enterprise systems integrations, there are no effective means to address this complexity issue in practice. We describe an effort to address the issue by advancing message standards
