In the context of a broadened product lifecycle management envi- ronment, a traditional product information management, also referred to as product master data management (P-MDM) needs to be complemented by other MDM domains. Such MDM domains may include Customers, Financials, Sup- pliers, Human Resources, Events and other domains. To satisfy such a transver- sal set of requirements requires a true cross-enterprise semantic integration capability. This capability cannot be met by current off…

Ontology-Based Big Data Management
TLDR
Three use cases of information systems that could be improved are described, and approaches based on semantic technologies and ontologies are proposed, which relate to data integration, data quality, and business process integration.
Semantic Technologies for Managing Complex Product Information in Enterprise Systems
TLDR
Three use cases of product information systems to be improved are described and approaches based on semantic technologies are proposed and the selected use cases are data integration, data quality and workflow integration.
Ontology Pattern-Based Data Integration
TLDR
This dissertation represents a study on how small, self-contained ontologies, called ontology design patterns, can be employed to provide semantic interoperability in a cross-repository data integration system, and proposes the so-called pattern views that allow data providers to publish their data in very simple intermediate schema.
A Reference Architecture for an Enterprise Knowledge Infrastructure
TLDR
An innovative approach, the Reference Architecture of an Enterprise Knowledge Infrastructure (RA-EKI) that provides a holistic approach to manage the complete knowledge lifecycle is proposed.
Ontology Based Data Management - A Study in a Brazilian Federal Agency
TLDR
A research study directed to data management under ontological approach is described, which proposes an Enterprise Information Architecture Model in the form of a conceptual layer-based data prototype, taking into account both academic and industry-driven studies.
A Systems Engineering-based semantic model to support "Product-Service System" life cycle. (Un modèle sémantique basé sur l'ingénierie des systèmes pour supporter le cycle de vie des systèmes "Produit-Service")
TLDR
This thesis aims at exploring the potentials of Systems Engineering (SE) as a conceptual foundation to represent various different business perspectives associated with the life cycle of the PSS through a meta-model and an ontological model for the common repository of the ICP4Life platform.
Exploiting Knowledge Graphs for Facilitating Product/Service Discovery
TLDR
This work presents a cost-effective solution for e-commerce on the Data Web by employing an unsupervised approach for data classification and exploiting the knowledge graphs for matching and describes available products in web ontology language OWL and stores them in a triple store.
Innovations in Enterprise Information Systems Management and Engineering - 4th International Conference, ERP Future 2015 - Research, Munich, Germany, November 16-17, 2015, Revised Papers
TLDR
This volume presents the revised and peer reviewed contributions of the ERP Future 2015 conference held in Munich, Germany on November 16-17, 2015 and considers topics in education in enterprise systems; business process management; enterprise systems and solution providers; and IT-trends.
RA-EKI: A use case for collaborative logistics planning in coalition force deployment
TLDR
An innovative approach is proposed, the Reference Architecture of an Enterprise Knowledge Infrastructure (RA-EKI) that provides a holistic and integrative approach to manage the complete unstructured data to knowledge lifecycle applicable to military logistics planning.

An ontology-based approach for Product Lifecycle Management
Ontology based ETL process for creation of ontological data warehouse
TLDR
This approach can overcome the drawbacks of most existing approaches to ETL; as it automates the key activities of the process, such as: extraction of metainformation, generation of logical and physical data models, and transformation of information.
An Environment for Multi-domain Ontology Development and Knowledge Acquisition
TLDR
An ontology and knowledge engineering environment (OKEE) is implemented for multi-domain ontology development and knowledge acquisition and a list of functionalities for ontology design and for knowledge acquisition is provided.
A Domain Ontology Approach in the ETL Process of Data Warehousing
TLDR
Domain ontology is introduced into ETL process of finding the data sources, defining the rules of data transformation, and eliminating the heterogeneity, and the result shows that ontology method plays an important role in the process of data integration by providing common descriptions of the concepts and relationships of data items.
An Ontology-Based Approach for Closed-Loop Product Lifecycle Management
TLDR
An ontology model of a Product Data and Knowledge Management Semantic Object Model for PLM has been developed and the transformation process of the model into an ontology-based one, using Web Ontology Language-Description Logic (OWL-DL), is described in detail.
Data modelling versus ontology engineering
TLDR
The DOGMA ontology engineering approach is introduced that separates "atomic" conceptual relations from "predicative" domain rules and a layer of "relatively generic" ontological commitments that hold the domain rules.
Using Lexical Ontology for Semi-automatic Logical Data Warehouse Design
TLDR
A semi-automatic tool is proposed using lexical ontology as the knowledge domain to generate Data Warehouse multidimensional model with minimal user interaction.
Ontology (Science)
TLDR
The proposition to be defended here is that ontologies of this type --the Gene Ontology being the most conspicuous example --are a part of science, and that a new conception of what is involved in the authoring, maintenance and application of ontologies in scientific contexts is required.
Ontology Development 101: A Guide to Creating Your First Ontology
TLDR
An ontology defines a common vocabulary for researchers who need to share information in a domain that includes machine-interpretable definitions of basic concepts in the domain and relations among them.
