Ri Hai, Manfred Theißen, Wolfgang Marquardt:
An integrated ontology for operational processes
In: Jacek Jeżowski, Jan Thullie (Eds.): 19th European Symposium on Computer Aided Process Engineering, 1087-1091
Representing the knowledge of engineering work processes such as design or operational processes explicitly is vital for sharing and reusing knowledge. “Process knowledge” and “product knowledge” are considered in this paper. Whereas process knowledge is about a work process itself, product knowledge deals with the products of a work process. OntoCAPE is an integrated ontology, which allows the explicit representation of product and process knowledge for both design and operational processes in chemical engineering. This paper focuses on OntoCAPE´s partial ontology for operational processes. The integration of the product ontology and the process ontology facilitates a comprehensive representation of all relevant aspects of operational processes.
