This section details the structural decomposition of HORSE logical data architecture, and the set of HORSE concept models:

  • an agent concept model, which specifies the concepts and relations between concepts that describe actors in a manufacturing context, i.e., entities that can perform manufacturing activities;
  • an activity concept model, which specifies the concepts and relations between concepts that describe the activities to be performed in a manufacturing context by agents;
  • an event concept model, which specifies the concepts and relations between concepts that describe events that require reactions in a manufacturing context; this concept model is included because monitoring and safety are important aspects in HORSE.

The figure below shows part (a projection) of the HORSE overall concept model – and the connection between the HORSE agent concept model, the HORSE activity concept model and the HORSE event concept model.
