Abstract

In nascent areas, such as Smart Manufacturing, new collaborative research and development programs (R&D) are frequently formed with the goal to ignite the innovation lifecycle. Yet, clearly formulating common goals and enabling shared understanding of key concepts, which are critical to achieving these goals, often involve long, drawn-out processes. These processes typically involve roadmapping that meet the need for informal, albeit imprecise and ambiguous, communications. We are starting to develop a roadmapping meta-model and an associated ontology to provide more precise and less ambiguous communications in a recently started R&D program on Smart Manufacturing. In this paper, we start to analyze use cases to provide input into the meta-model and ontology development.
