English abstract:
Cyber Physical Production Systems have a need of sharing and interlinking information and knowledge over different domains. In the area of industrial automation, OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) is a widely used and established standard for communication and information modeling. We propose an ontology-based OPC UA data access method utilizing custom property functions, which enables interlinking between OPC UA information and other factory data. To avoid duplicated data and to reduce the communication overhead in the proposed method, the OPC UA run-time data are loaded on-demand and are not persistently stored in the triplestore. To enable fast and easy ontology-based access and interlinking of the OPC UA information, the needed ontology is automatically generated from the OPC UA information model. A proof of concept demonstrates the application of our approach for a laboratory use-case of a Packed-Bed Regenerator.
