Conformance To Standards: A content ontology design pattern

Conformance to Standards SEP: A content ontology design pattern This P Monika  Solanki  and  Craig  Chapman   (versi comm {monika.solanki,  craig.chapman}   If you Birmingham  City  University,  UK   tempe day Intent Pattern Usage: Algal Biomass Production Processes Activities, operations, processes and services in most domains of As an exemplifier for the pattern, the figure below depicts the application of SEP tode interest are governed by standards. an ontology that models algal biomass production processes. Verifour Go to As defined by the ISO/IEC Guide 2:19961, The Minimum Descriptive Language (MDL)2 standard proposed by the Algal Biomass “A standard is a set of specifications that is Association3 is enforced by the production operation. MDL recommends a set of prefe established by consensus and approved by a recognized descriptive metrics to uniformly characterise the analysis of large scale algal size o body that provides for common and repeated use, rules, guidelines or characteristics for activities or their results, operations. In this use case, the ontology defines the concepts and relationships for printe the operation and incorporates SEP by defining ontological primitives for the process, aimed at the achievement of the optimum degree of the standard, the publishing organisation, guidelines for measuring Carbon input to look l order in a given context.” the operation and guidelines for disposing liquid waste. evalu subm The remit of the Standards Enforcer Pattern (SEP) is to enable the ontological modelling of processes, activities, operations and services that enforce guideline(s) recommended by a specific standard and need to Using explicitly indicate their conformance to it. The pattern allows the To ad inclusion of minimalistic information regarding the conformance, while and t retaining the flexibility to extend the ontological primitives as required. click Competency Questions frame !   Which are the standards enforced by this process/product/agent/material?
