Kuaba Ontology: Design Rationale Representation and Reuse in Model-Based Designs [chapter]

Adriana Pereira de Medeiros, Daniel Schwabe, Bruno Feijó
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A formally defined DR representation may allow integrating the formal semantics of the artifacts being designed, and allows automated computations over such representations.  ...  This paper presents the Kuaba Ontology, a knowledge representation model for Design Rationale described in an ontology definition language.  ...  DR also in domains where there are no well defined formal models to describe artifacts.  ...

Enhanced SPARQL-based design rationale retrieval

Luye Li, Shuming Gao, Ying Liu, Xiaolian Qin
2016 Artificial intelligence for engineering design, analysis and manufacturing  
AbstractDesign rationale (DR) is an important category within design knowledge, and effective reuse of it depends on its successful retrieval.  ...  First, an ontology-based semantic model of DR is developed based on the extended issue-based information system-based DR representation in order to effectively utilize the semantics embedded in DR, and  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT The authors are very grateful to the financial support from the National Science Foundation of China (NO. 61173125).  ...

An Approach to Design Rationale Retrieval Using Ontology-Aided Indexing

Luye Li, Feiwei Qin, Shuming Gao
2013 Volume 2B: 33rd Computers and Information in Engineering Conference   unpublished
First, a design rationale ontology is designed based on the extended IBIS-based design rationale representation in order to effectively utilize the semantics embedded in DR.  ...  Then, an ontology-aided indexing method is proposed to build indexes for design rationale records to index the semantic concepts and relationships in DR.  ...  Acknowledgement The authors are very grateful to the financial support from the National Science Foundation of China (NO. 61173125).  ...
