Abstract

This paper addresses the issue of process ontology integration using a complete set of process information requirements as its basis.  The goals of the paper are: (1)to give an overview of the requirements necessary to represent  manufacturing process and discuss different ways of categorizing these  requirements, (2)to discuss the concept of an ontology and desc structure, and (3)to describe how the PSL process requirements can help provide the  foundation for a single, high-level ontology that describes the  process domain as well as provide a basis for comparing existing process  ontologies specific to individual enterprises.
