Ontology-Based Model for Food Transformation Processes - Application to Winemaking
This paper describes an ontology for modeling any food processing chain. It is intended for data and knowledge integration and sharing. The proposed ontology (Onto-FP) is built based on four main concepts: Product, Operation, Attribute and Observation. This ontology is able to represent food product transformations as well as temporal sequence of food processes. The Onto-FP can be easy integrated to other domains due to its consistencies with DOLCE ontology. We detail an application in the domain of winemaking and prove that it can be easy queried to answer questions related to data classification, food process itineraries and incomplete data identification.
