More knowledge for less complex product models

Abstract: Emerging digital interoperability causes pressure and uncertainity within the labor-intensive industries. This is particularly true for construction industry. Therefore ITC faces great challenges. One of the most teasing challenges is the problem of transparent data exchange within product lifecycle. Data exchange based on concepts like data import/export, single standard agreement and common scheme does not perform satisfactory. In the paper integration through repository of concepts - ontologies within application domain is promoted. Manipulation of concepts is based on logical derivations of explicit knowledge. Integration issues that arise in a federation of heterogeneous data sources, possible storing related information, are investigated. Using our approach it is possible to compose a product model from heterogeneous data sources. We also suggest the use of a multi-agent system where agents take care for queries from multiple sources.
