ONTOLOGICAL APPROACH FOR THE CONFORMITY CHECKING MODELING IN CONSTRUCTION

Abstract

This paper presents an ontological method and a corresponding system C3R aimed to semi-automatically check the conformity of a construction project represented by RDF graph against a set of construction norms formalized as SPARQL queries. Our conformity-checking model has a two-level structure: the reasoning relies on matching of these queries and graphs and on expert rules guiding the checking process itself by optimal scheduling of matching procedures, according to semantic annotations of conformity queries, which integrate the meta-knowledge on the checking process (formalized with the help of CSTB experts). The reasoning results with a detailed (non)conformity report in terms of the Construction domain.
