Semantic Web Technologies and PLM

Product Life cycle Management (PLM) aims at effectively managing all the
data and information in a company for a product (or product portfolio)
throughout its lifespan (from its conception throughout its development
until its retirement and eventual disposal).

The main goal of PLM is to bring together all the information and data
available for a product (or product portfolio) and create an information
backbone accessible for everyone within the company as well as with outside
organizations such as suppliers, partners, and even customers.

By the inclusion of Semantic Web Technologies on every phase of the PLM
process we should be able to develop systems that are capable of consuming
the available data of a product (within each phase and among the whole
process) without the need of an expert to tailor and refine it for its
utilization. We could be able to reason over all the available information
regarding of which product we are analyzing. Although several approaches
have been proposed, none has yet been widely adopted; furthermore,
ontologies have not yet been extensively used. For each phase there have
been several contributions; feature extraction for design interoperability,
CAD/CAPP integration using feature ontology, Neutral representation for
manufacturing processes that supports automated reasoning via the Process
Specification Language (PSL), etc.

Providing a forum for exchanging experiences and ideas is part of our
objectives with this workshop. We would also like to encourage the
community to join efforts and generate a working group addressing semantic
issues within the Product Lifecycle Management scope.
Along with the paper presentations the goal of this workshop is to have a
common space in order to discuss the creation of a common test scenario in
which the participants define research areas that might not been explored
and make some recommendations on such areas. The outcome of such discussion
might as well be a roadmap or a position paper towards conforming a
research group to bring together the efforts and works of the participants.

Works must fall (but are not limited) into the following areas:
- Knowledge extraction
- Knowledge repositories
- Ontologies
- Applications

All of the above works must present new or ongoing works/applications that
denote a clear contribution towards data and information interoperability
and integration within the different stages of PLM by means of Semantic Web
and ontology based applications or technologies.

Topics include but are not limited to:

* How can Semantic Web support the development of new products?
* CAD ontologies? Are they needed?
* Would they be useful?
* Do we need one enterprise ontology, or a modular enterprise ontology?
* Can OWL be used to represent processes in the manufacturing domain?
* Knowledge management to manage the manufacturing "Know how".
* How can the versioning of products be managed? Would an ontology help?
* How can raw materials be semantically described?
* How can tagging techniques be applied within the PL M domain?
