As manufacturing and commerce become ever more global, companies are dependent increasingly upon the efficient and effective sharing of information with their partners, wherever they may be. Leading manufacturers perform this sharing with computers, which must therefore have the required software to encode and decode the associated electronic transmissions. Because no single company can dictate that all its partners use the same software, standards for how the information is represented become… 

Interoperable manufacturing knowledge systems

TLDR
A progression of research and understanding is presented, culminating in the work undertaken in the recent EU FLEXINET project, to develop a comprehensive manufacturing reference ontology that can support the clarification of understanding across domains, support the ability to flexibly share information across interacting software systems and provide the able to readily configure company knowledge bases to support interoperable manufacturing systems.

Knowledge framework for intelligent manufacturing systems

TLDR
A knowledge framework is presented to use semantically enriched international product data standards, and knowledge representation elements as a basis for achieving seamless enterprise interoperability and make interoperable intelligent manufacturing systems a reality.

Reference ontologies for interoperability across multiple assembly systems

TLDR
The aim of this paper is to investigate the interoperability of assembly systems at multiple levels of concept specialisations using the concept of a formal reference ontology to support interoperability.

Ontologies and standards-based approaches to interoperability for Concurrent Engineering.

Concurrent Engineering (CE) is a systematic approach to the integrated and concurrent design of products and related processes, including aspects as diverse as manufacture and support. It is only now

Ontological Approach to Support the Horizontal and Vertical Information Integration in Smart Manufacturing Systems: An Experimental Case in a Long-Life Packaging Factory

TLDR
The MANUMATE framework is applied to two experimental case studies to validate the conceptual solution in two different applications, in the context of a long-life package for the beverages industry and a discussion about the benefits and limitations of the solution is presented.

Tuple-Based Semantic and Structural Mapping for a Sustainable Interoperability

TLDR
The authors propose the integration of traceability functionalities in information systems as a way to support such sustainability in the long term stable interoperable enterprise operating environment.

Semantic Interoperability among Industrial Product Data Standards using an Ontology Network

TLDR
An ontology network is proposed as a semantic bridge among standards for product representation, as a solution to reach interoperability among information system in manufacturing industries.

Dynamic Business Networks: A Headache for Sustainable Systems Interoperability

TLDR
Concepts from the complex systems science are drawn and a framework for sustainable systems interoperability in dynamic networks is proposed, enabling different organizations to evolve at their own rate.

Interoperability of product and manufacturing information using ontology

TLDR
This article proposes a data integration method for both parametric information of a model and non-parametric information (product and manufacturing information)—by constructing a neutral platform using OWL ontology, and shows a pilot implementation that verifies interoperability between commercial computer-aided design and computer- aided design/computer-aiding manufacturing/analysis systems.

Process Specification Language (PSL): Results of the First Pilot Implementation

TLDR
The results of the first pilot implementation of PSL were described, where PSL was successfully used as an interlingua to exchange manufacturing process information between the IDEF3-based ProCAP1 process modeling tool and the C++ based ILOG Scheduler.

Interoperability Cost Analysis of the U.S. Automotive Supply Chain

iii Acknowledgments We would like to acknowledge the assistance of contacts in the U.S. automotive supply chain who provided information for this study.

Toward a Geometry of Common Sense: A Semantics and a Complete Axiomatization of Mereotopology

TLDR
This work offers an alternative to Tarski, starting with mereotopological notions that have proved useful in the semantic analysis of spatial expressions and gives a complete axiomatization of this account of mereotipological reasoning.
