Α Web API will return semantic data. The communication interface is through the SPARQL query engine. Z-BRE4K ontology is implemented with the Open Semantic Framework (OSF), an integrated software stack using semantic technologies for knowledge management. Furthermore, JSON formatted data from the shop floor is transferred through a MQTT broker, to be finally stored in I-LiKe machines internal data repository. IDS connectors are used to transform data into the NGSI format, move the data to the ORION context broker to be finally consumed by other applications. Also, the Quality Information Framework (QIF) standard guarantees interoperability since it defines an integrated set of information models that enable the effective exchange of metrology data throughout the entire manufacturing quality measurement process – from product design to inspection planning to execution to analysis and reporting. OpenCPPS (part of AUTOWARE) will provide support for selected mainstream communication protocols and will define the proper interfaces for other communication protocols to be plugged-in.
Ontology-based data integration is part of the Z-BRE4K solution. Ontology effectively combines data and/or information from multiple heterogeneous sources. The ontology semantics used by SPL program is described through OWL. OWL follows the RDF syntax, so SPARQL is suitable for seamlessly querying the ontology defined by OWL. SPARQL will be used as the transformation language for converting Semantic data to corresponding syntax data. IDS connectors are used in Z-BRE4K to guarantee the interoperability among the various components that are not part of the Industrial Data Space. Part of connectors functionality is to transform data to/from NGSI format data in order to be shared by the ORION context broker.
Z-BRE4K ontology contains information about all Z-BRE4K relevant data (metadata), linked in a way described by a controlled, shared vocabulary. The data relationships are part of the data itself, in one self-describing information package that is independent of any information system. In simple terms, this means that data from various sources can be easily harmonised. The shared vocabulary, and its associated links to an ontology, provide the foundation and the capabilities of machine interpretation, inference, and logic.
