Dataset Description
Industry 4.0 (I4.0) is a new era in the Industrial Revolution that emphasizes machines connectivity, automation, and data analytics. The I4.0 pillars such as autonomous robots, cloud computing, horizontal and vertical system integration, industrial internet of things have increased the performance and efficiency of production lines in the manufacturing industry. Over the past years, efforts have been made to propose semantic models to represent the manufacturing domain knowledge, one such model is Reference Generalized Ontological Model (RGOM). However, its adaptability like other models was not ensured due to the lack of manufacturing data. In this paper, we aim to develop an I4.0 benchmark dataset that can be used to validate the tools, techniques, and methods. This work is a result of collaborations with the production line managers, supervisors, and engineers of a football industry to acquire realistic production line data. Knowledge Graphs (KG) has emerged as a significant technology to store the semantics of the domain entities. It has been used in a variety of industries, including banking, the automobile industry, oil and gas, pharmaceutical and health care, publishing, media, etc. The data is mapped with RGOM classes and relations using an automated solution based on JenaAPI producing an Industry 4.0 Knowledge Graph. It contains more than 2.5 million axioms and about 1 million instances. This KG enables us to validate the adaptability and usefulness of the RGOM. Our research helps the stakeholders to take timely decisions by exploiting the information embedded in the KG. In relation to this, the RGOM adaptability is validated with the help of a use case scenario to discover required information such as current temperature at a certain time, status of the motor, tools deployed on the machine, etc.
