The Solution Envisaged: Developing Semantic Tools to Semi-Automate the Mappings among Different CCTS based Standards


Set tc objectives revisited
SET TC Objectives revisited Semi-Automate the Mappings among Different CCTS based Standards

  • UN/CEFACT CCTS (Core Component Technical Specification) defines the semantics of document artifacts

  • However, currently this semantics is available only through text-based search mechanisms

  • SET TC aim is to explicate the semantics of CCTS based business document standards by defining their semantic properties through a formal, machine processable language as an ontology

  • In this way, it becomes possible to compute a harmonized ontology which gives

    • The similarities among document schema ontology classes of different document standards through both

      • The semantic properties they share and

      • The semantic equivalences established through reasoning


The upper ontologies
The Upper Ontologies Semi-Automate the Mappings among Different CCTS based Standards

  • The semantics is explicated at two levels: At the first level, an upper ontology describing the CCTS document content model is specified

  • Furthermore,at this level, the upper ontologies of the prominent CCTS based standards,namely, GS1 XML, OAGIS 9.1 and UBL are also developed

  • The various equivalence relationships between the classes of the CCTS upper ontology and theCCTS based document standard ontologies are defined

  • These relationships arelater used to find the similarities among the document artifacts from differentdocument schemas


Example core component data t ype semantics
Example: Core Component Semi-Automate the Mappings among Different CCTS based StandardsData Type semantics

  • CCTS provides a fixed set of reusable “Core Component Data Types" (CCTs) such as Amount, Identier, or Measure

  • The Core Component Type semanticsis explicated through the “owl: CoreComponentType" class

  • For each of the14 CCTs, a corresponding OWL class is created and inserted as the subclassof “owl:CoreComponentType" class

Core Component Semi-Automate the Mappings among Different CCTS based StandardsData Type semantics

<owl:Class rdf:ID="CoreComponentType" />

<owl:Class rdf:ID="Amount.Type">

<rdfs:subClassOf rdf:resource="#CoreComponentType"/>

</owl:Class>

<owl:Class rdf:ID="BinaryObject.Type">

<rdfs:subClassOf rdf:resource="#CoreComponentType"/>

</owl:Class>

<owl:Class rdf:ID="Code.Type">

<rdfs:subClassOf rdf:resource="#CoreComponentType"/>

</owl:Class>

<owl:Class rdf:ID="Date.Type">

<rdfs:subClassOf rdf:resource="#CoreComponentType"/>

</owl:Class>

<owl:Class rdf:ID="DateTime.Type">

<rdfs:subClassOf rdf:resource="#CoreComponentType"/>

</owl:Class>


Other semantic properties of ccts core components
Other Semantic Properties of CCTS Core Components Semi-Automate the Mappings among Different CCTS based Standards

  • Context (the “context” semantics is defined at an absolute minimum since UN/CEFACT UCM is working on this subject)

  • The structure of the core components(BCCs and ASCCs making up ACCs)

  • The semantics implied by the naming convention used(“Object Class Term” and “Representation Term”)

  • The semantics implied by the Business Information Entities (based on a Core Component and used in a context)

  • The semantics implied by the code lists


Ccts upper ontology
CCTS Upper Ontology Semi-Automate the Mappings among Different CCTS based Standards


The upper ontologies1
The Upper Ontologies Semi-Automate the Mappings among Different CCTS based Standards

  • The semantics is explicated at two levels: At the first level, an upper ontology describing the CCTS document content model is specied

  • Furthermore,at this level, the upper ontologies for the prominent CCTS based standards,namely, GS1 XML, OAGIS 9.1 and UBL are also developed

  • The various equivalence relationships between the classes of the CCTS upper ontology and theCCTS based document standard ontologies are defined

  • These relationships arelater used to find the similarities among the document artifacts from differentdocument schemas


Document schema ontologies
Document Schema Ontologies Semi-Automate the Mappings among Different CCTS based Standards

  • At the next level, the semantics of the document schemas in each standard are described based on its upper ontology

  • The difference between the document schema specific ontology and the upper ontology is that

    • The upper ontology describes the generic entities in a document content model

    • Whereas document schema ontologies describe the actual document artifacts as the subclasses of the classes in the upper ontology

  • The SET XSD-OWL tool converts a CCTS based document schema into OASIS SET TC OWL Definition and is publicly available from http://www.srdc.metu.edu.tr/iSURF/OASIS-SET-TC/tools/OASISSET.zip


Set harmonized ontology
SET Harmonized Ontology Semi-Automate the Mappings among Different CCTS based Standards

  • When these ontologies are harmonized using a DL reasoner, the computed inferred ontologies reveal the implicit equivalences and subsumtion relationships between the document artifacts

  • In other words,

    • The shared semantic properties of the CCTS based document artifacts together with

    • The implicit relationships inferred, help to identify their similarities


Next step
Next step… Semi-Automate the Mappings among Different CCTS based Standards

  • Further explanations related with the Deliverable?

  • How to use SET Specifications in real life applications?

    • In the iSURF Project to map supply chain planning documents conforming to different standards to each other

    • TC Members proposals…
