Dynamic adaption in cyber-physical production systems based on ontologies

  • The paradigmatic shift of production systems towards Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPSs) requires the development of flexible and decentralized approaches. In this way, such systems enable manufacturers to respond quickly and accurately to changing requirements. However, domain-specific applications require the use of suitable conceptualizations. The issue at hand, when using various conceptualizations is the interoperability of different ontologies. To achieve flexibility and adaptability in CPPSs though requires overcoming interoperability issues within CPPSs. This paper presents an approach to increase flexibility and adaptability in CPPSs while addressing the interoperability issue. In this work, OWL ontologies conceptualize domain knowledge. The Intelligent Manufacturing Knowledge Ontology Repository (IMKOR) connects the domain knowledge in different ontologies. Testing if adaptions in one ontology within the IMKOR provide knowledge to the whole IMKOR. The tests showed, positive results and the repository makes the knowledge available to the whole CPPS. Furthermore, an increase in flexibility and adaptability was noticed.
