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.
