NIST Investigation into Semantics for Systems Engineering

This page reports the results and discussion coming out of a NIST-sponsored investigation, being led by TopQuadrant, into Semantic Web technology being applied to Systems Engineering. The project actually includes PLCS Asset Management, aka Integrated Logistics Support or ILS, but this wiki page will focus on the SE results. The investigation includes these areas:

  1. the use of the W3C Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) to publish engineering technical dictionaries
  2. the use of Semantic Web technology (OWL, SPARQL, SPIN) to support the interchange and federation of engineering data
  3. the use of Semantic Web technology (OWL) in support of strong ontologies for reasoning, and as the basis for rules
  4. the traces, links and mappings between the elements of the engineering dictionaries, models (e.g. SysML) and ontologies

A presentation of interim results was made to the OMG SE DSIG at Reston, Va on March 20, 2012:
