metaphactory supports customers in their digitalization strategy towards intelligent engineering and manufacturing by allowing them to extend data silos with domain-specific models, connect individual data islands, and analyze the integrated data, thus transforming passive data into new, smart knowledge. It generates business value by significantly increasing transparency, reducing redundancy, improving internal processes, and reducing the time required to find and analyze information and reach smart business decisions.

Flexible self-service data access for domain experts

  • Unified data hub for information distributed across multiple, heterogeneous data sources, regardless of data type or format
  • Domain experts leverage domain ontologies and intelligent query construction mechanisms (SPARQL) to access and analyze data in the knowledge graph

Configurations generation to meet customer requirements

  • Improved management of data across multiple subject matters incl. product configuration and operating & maintenance data, error information, and customer data
  • Integrated design process across all components and technologies, thus helping create constraint systems and design flexible solutions on demand

Assurance of product information integrity

  • Reduced efforts for data management by consolidating and connecting product knowledge, and providing high-quality data on product relations for customer-facing applications
  • Guaranteed consistency of information across tools - data integrity dashboard based on expert-defined rules to derive and quality-check product relations and identify data quality issues

Understand and mitigate financial risks

  • Highly agile analysis of risks by combining internal and external data, and leveraging search and analysis interfaces to support arbitrary information needs
  • Improved transparency over customer, partner and competitor data through a unified view over complex networks of comapny relations

Collaboration across various business units and hierarchies

  • Unify corporate data silos to provide transparency over informal communities, as well as formal organizational hierarchies
  • Information on people, projects and organizations is stored in the knowledge graph and makes finding experts easy

Prescriptive advice for complex rule frameworks

  • Time spent on understanding and following processes is reduced by integrating rules, regulations and restrictions in the knowledge graph
  • Non-conformance costs caused by process violations are reduced by automatically providing contextualized information and descriptive advice for various scenarios
Bosch Logo

Aiming to support engineers in developing and introducing new materials for production, Bosch is building a knowledge graph that exposes material science knowledge and supplies high-quality answers about existing materials in a timely manner.

In a recent paper presented at the ISWC 2019 Industry Track, Bosch describes how the knowledge graph integrates information stored across multiple sources, and how metaphactory is used to satisfy complex query needs through a user-friendly interface for standard keyword search and semantic-based faceted search.

Customer Reference at AWS re:Invent

Intelligent Engineering & Manufacturing

Leveraging semantic technologies and the metaphactory platform, the Industrial Knowledge Graph has become an integral element in Siemens' strategy towards intelligent engineering and manufacturing. It powers various business use cases, including gas turbine maintenance, building automation, risk management, factory monitoring, and internal R&D management

To learn more about Siemens's Industrial Knowledge Graph, have a look at the following material:
