Ontology-Based Information Model for the Exchange of Uncertainty in Load Carrying Structures
Knowledge about future process properties is crucial for the development of safe and economic products with load carrying structures. Real processes are influenced by uncertainty what causes scattering and deviation from assumed values. As a consequence, products are often oversized or even product failures can occur. To control uncertainty, extensive knowledge about future processes is necessary in the development process. This paper shows an approach for the representation of uncertainty in production-and usage-processes, according to scattering properties and their cause and effect relations. This approach is used as a common platform for storing, locating, comparing and reuse of knowledge about uncertain properties and their relations. The core of the proposed approach is an ontology-based information model with the ability to represent different levels of trusted information in relation to process parameters and cause and effect relations.
