An Ontology-Based Manufacturing Design System

Sun Wei, Ma Qin-yi and Gao Tian-yi

In this study, an ontology-based system is proposed to solve problems raised in the manufacturing design by expanding traditional development activity with Knowledge Management (KM), a Product Knowledge Model (PKM) and the Intelligent Application System (IAS). The KM helps to management the knowledge in the design process, while the PKM supports to locate proper information and the IAS is responsible for applying the product knowledge among different application systems throughout the product life cycle. The PKM is encoded in OWL to realize semantic match and enhance the performance of organization capability and knowledge sharing. The routine design assistance is developed to reuse the product knowledge based on configuration method generating function satisfied solution rapidly by reasoning the configuration rules represented in SWRL. The information retrieval theory is involved to support manufacturing knowledge sharing. A prototype system of binging machine design is developed to verify the proposed approach, using the semantic web technology, for seamless sharing domain-specific design knowledge among multidisciplinary organizations and intelligent supporting the manufacturing design.
