Semantic Interoperability and the Use of Standards in transport & logistics: FENIX use case .

In order to enable a uniform understanding of all entities in the field of “logistics of goods and services” 
within the framework of the FENIX project, a data model and uniform descriptions of the entities are 
required. The FENIX semantic data model has, therefore, has been developed based on the physical 
activities in the pilots’ use cases for the transport and handling of goods. 
In order for the digital twin to be created, the physical world must be mapped over to the digital world. 
This is achieved by creating a digital twin for each entity. For this purpose, the data modelling can be 
used as a reference and guideline for the development of the semantic model.  

The main objective in creating the data model was to define and specify the 
objects to be managed in an information system and document the required attributes and their 
relationships between the objects. This was achieved by carrying out a requirements analysis of the 
individual FENIX use cases where the individual entities were identified and through a conceptual 
phase where the model was finally developed.
