Erection of Upper Ontology and Enrichment of Knowledge Base of Production Workshop in Manufacturing Enterprises
After the business model and the ontology meta-model of production workshops are analyzed and the business processes of the workshop are described formally, the upper ontologies are built on the basis of the business process, and are used to derive the domain ontologies in the workshops. Using SWRL to extend ontologies with rules overcomes the expressive limitation of ontologies. The system architecture of the manufacturing knowledge generation based on rules is put forward. Finally an example is used to explain the process of knowledge generation based on the rules.
