Abstract: Object-oriented modelling has become an established technique for product and manufacturing knowledge representation. Various models offering generalised classes and class hierarchies have been proposed for this purpose. Additional bespoke classes are however typically required for specific domain representations. This causes problems when knowledge needs to be shared between domains using different models to describe common entities. These issues are especially complex when several systems are involved. For example, a designer accessing product, manufacturing, and third party systems may face multiple definitions of components, facilities and processes. This paper proposes a model that addresses some of these issues. The proposed model can describe manufacturing knowledge without additional bespoke classes. The detailed semantics of the model are based on recent work on ontologies, notably the Process Specification Language (PSL). Whilst PSL provides detailed semantics, it is not inherently object-oriented. The integration of PSL with object-oriented modelling methods is therefore the principle contribution of this work.
