As progress towards globalisation continues, organisations seek ever better ways with which to configure and reconfigure their global production networks so as to better understand and be able to deal with risk. Such networks are complex arrangements of different organisations from potentially diverse and divergent domains and geographical locations. Moreover, greater focus is being put upon global production network systems and how these can be better coordinated, controlled and assessed for ri...

The need to innovate and compete drives organisations to constantly seek new approaches to facilitate business and commerce. As market places become ever more globalised and digital economies grow, these organisations rely more heavily upon systems to design and deliver their products and services. Hence, when developing and operating a global production network the need for systems to interoperate between different domains and contexts within a global production network becomes paramount if org...

We present the preliminary results for the capture and modelling of end-user information.An initial higher level reference core ontology for the development of reference ontologies.The formal logical modelling of Level 1 of the FLEXINET reference ontology using a Common Logic based approach. In competitive and time sensitive market places, organisations are tasked with providing product lifecycle management (PLM) approaches to achieve and maintain competitive advantage, react to change and under...

The configuration and deployment of global production networks, raises questions about the interchange of data and information between varied and different organisations, domains and systems. Standards should be an instrumental part of forming a basis to enable seamless interoperability, yet there is no clear support for global production networks. This paper sets out a reference ontology for global production networks being developed as a basis for interoperability between systems, with the pot...

Organisations constantly seek to improve and fully exploit global production networks. This can be to provide more competitive solutions to customer requests, to exploit potential new technologies or to consider new business models based on the servitisation of products. To support such decisions requires the interchange and evaluation of information from a wide range of different and varied sources. This paper puts forward a reference ontology aimed at supporting businesses who seek to design, ...

The goal of this position paper is to introduce the research topics in engineering and the motivations for the application of semantic technologies. A group called Ontology Based Engineering – OBE has been created by the engineering community to share experiences in this field and the various challenges faced in using ontologies and related tools. The OBE groups aims at creating a dialog with the ontology specialists by sharing the research challenges and problems in ontology application.

The development and utilisation of flexible, reconfigurable Global Production Network organisations presents issues for the sharing and reuse of information and knowledge between systems and domains. The research approach put forward in this paper posits that manufacturing reference ontologies can provide the necessary underlying flexibility in a semantic-base to support interoperability. Moreover for that to be of real value to industry it needs to be commonly applicable across the breadth of m...

In competitive and time sensitive market places, organisations are tasked with providing Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) approaches to achieve and maintain competitive advantage, react to change and understand the balance of possible options when making decisions on complex multi-faceted problems, Global Production Networks (GPN) is one such domain in which this applies. When designing and configuring GPN to develop, manufacture and deliver product-service provision, information requirements ...

The nature of competition induces the need to constantly improve and perform better. For global aerospace manufacturers, this is as timely an epithet as ever as market forces urge for more growth, better financial return and market position. The macroeconomic aspect is compounded by the growth of product complexity and the need for higher product quality, hence the drive to reduce waste places emphasis upon production costs and the need to improve product performance. This paper focuses upon a r...

Successfully fulfilling customers’ needs with world class products whilst remaining competitive and profitable are a major driver for the aerospace industry. The 21st Century is placing ever increasing pressure upon manufacturers to deliver high complexity, technologically enabled products to instantaneously fulfill a desired purpose at the point of use. To meet such stringent criteria, companies must find ways to continuously improve, reduce waste and accelerate the product development process ...
