Design of Environmentally friendly Products Using Information Standards
DEPUIS is a EU co-funded INNOVA project managed by ENEA.
The project is concerned with providing education about the use of ISO and W3C standards for the publishing of environmental data. A key objective will be the promotion of these standards for use by SMEs, and the provision of appropriate education material and demonstrators.
Four training courses provided by CAESAR Systems within this project are:
These courses will be illustrated by use of the DEPUIS project test case "The environmental consequences of building a small house (180 m2)".
Course materials currently available are:
This HTML document is an introduction to the use of reference data published on the Web (2007-10-16).
This paper was presented to the ESA/NAFEMS Seminar on Engineering Analysis Quality, Verification and Validation, 6 December 2007 ESA/ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands.
This document developed the ESA/NAFEMS paper, and was presented to the NAFEMS CAD-FE Working Group on 2008-03-18. The document describes what needs to be done to enable the industry to take advantage of this new technology. There are two key steps:
This presentation describes how data distributed over the Web can be published using formal vocabularies rather than data model. The presentation was given to the open technical forum of ISO TC184/SC4 at its meeting in Louisville, March 2008.
This presentation describes how LCA data can be accessed using formal vocabularies and the Semantic Web. The presentation was given to the Materials Congress 2008 seminar "Eco-Design: Materials for a Sustainable Society", organised by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, in Grantham (2008-05-13). The presentation was also given to the ENEA seminar "Standards for Environmental Data", Casaccia, 2008-05-14.
This is a brief introduction to some key concepts in ISO 15926-2, which was given to the REACH_and_LCA.ppt
This is a description of how ISO 15926-2 can be implemented as RDF statements, which was given to the ENEA seminar "Standards for Environmental Data", Casaccia, 2008-05-14.
This is a brief introduction to some key concepts in ISO 15926-3, which was given to the ENEA seminar "Standards for Environmental Data", Casaccia, 2008-05-14.
This HTML document describes how information relevant to implementation of REACH and LCA can be obtained from the Semantic Web (2008-05-2).
This presentation summarises the content the content of the document. The presentation was given to BSI committee AMT/4 on 2008-06-27 and to the Open Technical Forum of ISO TC184/SC4 at its meeting in Sun City, South Africa, June 2008.
The following presentations given at the seminar "Whole life cycle product management for manufacturing and construction" given at "Partnership for learning", Speke, Liverpool on 2009-09-23:
Intelligent Self-describing Technical and Environmental Networks
S-TEN is a EU co-funded IST project managed by FGH.
The project is concerned with self-describing networks. The project is defining ontologies, and web services which enable a device within a network to publish information about itself on the web.
A device can publish information about what it is, where it is and how it is connected. If a device contains a sensor, it can publish information about what it has observed.
The project has created the working draft of a new part of ISO 15926 Reference data for observations and measurement.
Deliverables of the project include:
a description of the contribution of the S-TEN project to standardization within ISO and W3C, covering three areas - reference data for observations and measurements within ISO 15926, the Semantic STEP proposal for a new version of ISO 10303, and the formation of the Product Modelling XG within W3C;
Deliverable D6.4 "Impact of S-TEN on standardization"
an ontology for time histories and their features to allow inferences to be made from time histories;
Deliverable D4.1 "Ontology for the representation of features"
an initial attempt at an ontology for design information derived from ISO 10303 (STEP);
Deliverable D3.1 "Linking STEP with OWL - Results of the Technology Validation"
a draft of an ontology for observations and measurements. This ontology will be submitted to ISO TC184/SC3/WG3 T25 as a contribution to the PWI for a part of ISO 15926 containing reference data for observations and measurements.
Deliverable D2.1 "Ontology for Self-Describing Networks"
Co-operation and Standards for life Cycle Assessment Data in Europe
CASCADE was an EU co-funded GROWTH project managed by ENEA.
The project was concerned with the use of ISO TC184/SC4 standards to integrate Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) data with product design data.
LCA data defined by ISO 14048 "Life cycle assessment - Data documentation format" was represented using:
The work was validated by a Round Robin example of a packaging Box provided by Rolls-Royce.
ScadaOnWeb was a EU co-funded IST project managed by FGH.
The ScadaOnWeb project conducted initial research on the use of Semantic Web for the publication of measurements. The project was also investigated the use of HDF5 in conjunction with semantics defined using OWL.
A public demonstrator of the ScadaOnWeb system is available from Cygnus Engineering on http://www.cygnus.ch/flood/.
The important public documents from the ScadaOnWeb project, including the ontologies, are available on http://www.s-ten.eu/index.php?sel=5-1.
The project produced an implementation of ISO 15926-2 using the Semantic Web. This is described in a presentation to the OLF "Integrated Operations - Knowledge Industry" seminar in Stavanger on 2005-09-29.
The project published the paper ScadaOnWeb - Web based supervisory control and data acquisition at the Second ISWC Conference in 2003, with an associated presentation.
Generic Engineering Model
GEM was an EU co-funded ESPRIT project managed by NAFEMS.
More information about the project is available on http://www.nafems.org/projects/GEM/ and http://cordis.europa.eu/esprit/src/results/res_area/iim/iim11.htm.
This project developed standards to integrate different types of engineering analysis, including CFD, mould flow, thermal, and structural. The result was a draft Generic Engineering Analysis Model. Most of this model has now been standardised as modules within the modular architecture of ISO 10303 (STEP).
ProcessBase was an EU co-funded ESPRIT project managed by Framatome.
This project began the research work leading to ISO 10303-221 "Functional data for process plant and their schematic representation" and to ISO 15926 "Life cycle data for process plant including oil and gas production facilities".
This project also worked with the US PlantStep consortium, to ensure harmonisation between ISO 10303-227 "Plant spatial configuration". For more details see of this work see http://research.cs.ncl.ac.uk/cabernet/www.laas.research.ec.org/esp-syn/text/iim-us9403.html.
