Semantics to the Shop Floor: Towards Ontology Modularization and Reuse in the Automation Domain

Christoph Legat, Christian Seitz, Steffen Lamparter, Stefan Feldmann
2014 IFAC Proceedings Volumes  
In this paper, these drawbacks of ontology development are discussed and an approach for maximizing reusability through modularizing ontologies for different fields of the automation domain is presented  ...  A means to solve this issue is ontologies -an approach being intensely discussed and applied for enhancing data with semantics.  ...  They might be reused for the description of a material a physical object (e.g. device or product) is or should be built of.  ...

Modular Ontologies – A Formal Investigation of Semantics and Expressivity [chapter]

Jie Bao, Doina Caragea, Vasant G. Honavar
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We compare Distributed Description Logics (DDL), E -connections, and Package-Based Description Logics (P-DL) with respect to these criteria.  ...  Our analysis suggests that by relaxing the strong domain disjointedness assumption adopted in DDL and E -connection, as P-DL demonstrated, it is possible to overcome some known semantic difficulties and  ...  A modular ontology should not only be syntactically modular (e.g., stored in separated XML name spaces), but also semantically modular.  ...

Architectures for product families

Freek Erens, Karel Verhulst
1997 Computers in industry (Print)  
To describe a product family, three domains can be recognised: the functional domain, the technology domain and the physical domain.  ...  It is argued that modularity and integration are conflicting requirements that are best solved using product architectures.  ...  Therefore, important considerations with respect to modularity and integration should be made in the early phases of the design process, where the product architectures in the different domains are determined  ...

Towards a DSAL for object layout in virtual machines

Stijn Timbermont, Bram Adams, Michael Haupt
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 AOSD workshop on Domain-specific aspect languages - DSAL '08  
High-level language virtual machine implementations offer a challenging domain for modularization, not only because they are inherently complex, but also because efficiency is not likely to be traded for  ...  modularity.  ...  The high-level description should be as declarative as possible, and should only contain that information which is actually required by the module at hand.  ...

Inflammation ontology design pattern: an exercise in building a core biomedical ontology with descriptions and situations

Aldo Gangemi, Carola Catenacci, Massimo Battaglia
2004 Studies in Health Technology and Informatics  
We use UML class diagrams, description logics, and the DOLCE foundational ontology, augmented with the Description and Situation theory, in order to provide the representational and ontological primitives  ...  Formal ontology has proved to be an extremely useful tool for negotiating intended meaning, for building explicit, formal data sheets, and for the discovery of novel views on existing data structures.  ...  Ontologies should modularize the domain's conceptual space as much as possible, by organizing the domain theories either into different ontologies or into different descriptions and situations.  ...

Survey of modular ontology techniques and their applications in the biomedical domain

Jyotishman Pathak, Thomas M. Johnson, Christopher G. Chute, S.H. Rubin, S.-C. Chen
2009 Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering  
We analyze and compare how such approaches can be leveraged in developing tools and applications in the biomedical domain.  ...  We conclude by highlighting some of the limitations of the modular ontology formalisms and put forward additional requirements to steer their future development.  ...  Table 1 Syntax and semantics of description logic - Size: A module M i (O) of an ontology O should be as small as possible.  ...

Towards an Engineering-Based Research Approach for Enterprise Architecture: Lessons Learned from Normalized Systems Theory [chapter]

Philip Huysmans, Jan Verelst
2013 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
Enterprise Architecture frameworks which are frequently used in practice, but are often criticized from a research perspective, can be positioned in this field.  ...  First, a more specific scoping of the domains which can be designed and the issues which can be handled by design should be clarified.  ...  These patterns should be designed to deal with changes from not only their functional domain (e.g., procurement), but from other domain as well (e.g., legal concerns).  ...

A Generic Framework for Context-Sensitive Analysis of Modular Programs [chapter]

Germán Puebla, Jesús Correas, Manuel V. Hermenegildo, Francisco Bueno, María García de la Banda, Kim Marriott, Peter J. Stuckey
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Other proposals do address context-sensitive analysis, but are only applicable when the description domain used satisfies rather restrictive properties.  ...  We also provide a high-level description of a framework for analysis of modular programs which does substantially meet these objectives.  ...  Different description domains may be used which capture different properties with different accuracy and cost.  ...

Modular structuring of VDM specifications in VVSL

C. A. Middelburg
1992 Formal Aspects of Computing  
Its modularization mechanism permits two modules to have parts of their state in common, including hidden parts.  ...  Finally, their modular structuring style and the suggested language features to support it are commented.  ...  Description Algebra Description Algebra is the heterogeneous algebra with the domains (a domain of names, a domain of renamings, a domain of signatures, a domain of descriptions and a domain of parameters  ...

2014 Computer applications in the biosciences : CABIOS  
MoDPepInt (Modular Domain Peptide Interaction) is a new easy-to-use web server for the prediction of binding partners for modular protein domains.  ...  More specifically, our server offers predictions for 51 SH2 human domains and 69 SH3 human domains via single domain models, and predictions for 226 PDZ domains across several species, via 43 multidomain  ...  *To whom correspondence should be addressed. y The authors wish it to be known that, in their opinion, the first two authors should be regarded as joint First Authors.  ...

Building Applications with Domain-Specific Markup Languages: A Systematic Approach to the Development of XML-Based Software [chapter]

José L. Sierra, Alfredo Fernández-Valmayor, Baltasar Fernández-Manjón, Antonio Navarro
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
XML is used as a common descriptive framework for DSLs formulation, obtaining Domain Specific Markup Languages (DSMLs).  ...  Hence ADDS provides a systematic approach to software development based on the processing of XML documentation that can be used in a great variety of domains.  ...  Neverthless, the new application domains should not change the initial linguistic conception: in order to develop an XML application the focus must be put on devising a markup language for describing the  ...

Semantics, Modularity, and Rewriting Logic

Peter D. Mosses
1998 BRICS Report Series  
A complete formal semantic description of a practical programming language (such as Java) is likely to be a lengthy document, regardless of which semantic framework is being used.  ...  Providing powerful meta-tools for such semantics-based interpretation<br />is an interesting potential application of rewriting logic;<br />good modularity of the semantic descriptions may be crucial for  ...  below): For brevity and uniformity, let e ∈ EV, n ∈ N, ρ ∈ Env, etc., range over the domains specified in Appendix A.1.2 (although here, the domains should really be regarded as ordinary sets).  ...
