A modern ontology for industrial applications
On these pages, you will find the PLM-RDL ontology. Based on the ISO 15926-14 upper ontology, this provides an expressive, yet efficient language for describing industrial assets. The ontology is built with W3C’s OWL 2, the de facto standard for ontologies.
