Re: ISO 15926, semantic web enhancement of ISO 10303


Yes, I was considering an ontology for a Tesla. I downloaded a number of
their patents, but wanted to make use of existing efforts to save time and
improve output if possible. I liked ISO 15926 due to the flexibility that
it seemed to promise over all of the ISO 10303 APs [2].

I found focus area in ISO 10303 for automotive would be AP 214 [1]. I found
it helpful that you linked to the Product modelling W3C efforts.

I'm trying to meet this through construction of an EIS that allows
participants to easily join and leave, and allows for small participants.
At this point, I'm trying to put together what is out there. I hope this
falls in line with Tesla's business case.

"We believe that Tesla, other companies making electric cars, and the world
would all benefit from a common, rapidly-evolving technology platform."
