A Topic-Map-based Framework to Enhance Components’ Retrieval in a Process Control

Abstract

Controlling a manufacturing process to meet customers’ requirements is crucial for many industrial companies to remain at the forefront. The control of a manufacturing process requires for each actor involved in this process to be reactive and effective in monitoring the process in order to meet company objectives. Enhancing the sharing and the retrieval of the components that support the control of such a process is necessary to effectively meet actors’ requirements for the accomplishment of their business tasks. Semantic description with knowledge representation techniques is one of the widely used techniques to address components’ retrieval. Existing methods focus on describing components according to their functionalities, thus they don’t really tackle user requirements that the components meet. We propose in this paper a layered conceptual framework to add semantic description to the components that support the manufacturing process control starting from the users’ requirements. A Topic-Map-based solution is proposed to support the implementation of this framework.
