Open standard CMO for parametric modelling based on semantic web
van Delft, A.
The Open Standard Concept Modelling Ontology (CMO) with Extensions makes it possible to store parametric modelling semantics and parametric geometry in a Semantic Web environment. The parametric and geometrical part of CMO with Extensions is developed within the EU project Proficient. The nature of the Semantic Web with support for multiple inheritance and bidirectional relations is kept; this means an alternative way to store typical parametric behavior scripts. This paper describes the generic upper-ontology created to make this possible, the tools used to visualize the parametric geometry and some of the new Modelling Guidelines we developed during development of CMO with Extensions and several test cases. Within the EU project Proficient a link to existing data was very important; therefore import/export from/to the open standard IFC was researched. A beta version for conversion in both directions (IFC => CMO and CMO => IFC) of the geometry is created and will be discussed.
