Abstract: The ability to create customized product configurations which satisfies a user’ needs is one of the major aims desired by companies. In particular, the design and implementation of web-based services that allows users to create and customize in a simple and intuitive way the desired product. One research area that has lacked progress is the definition of a common vocabulary that enables consumer-to-manufacturer and manufacturer-to-manufacturer communication. Enabling this communication opens possibilities such as the ability to express customer requirements correctly and to exchange knowledge between manufacturers. A popular approach to express knowledge uses ontological formalisms. Using ontology, a vocabulary can be defined that allows interested parties to specify and share common knowledge and serves to define a framework for the representation of the knowledge. With this aim, this paper presents an ontology-based configurator system that finds the configuration that maximizes t he user’s needs starting from the desired requirements, the available components, the context information and previous similar configurations. The process by which the system finds the candidate configuration follows an approach known as “Slow Intelligence”. This paper presents in detail the proposed approach and presents its first application. (More)
