ISO 16354 - Guidelines on Knowledge Libraries and Object Libraries

Gellish is compliant with the ISO 16354 guidelines. The guidelines in this ISO standard aim to guide developers towards interoperability. For that purpose the standard defines a number of basic concepts for

  • Vocabularies (lists of terms)
  • Dictionaries with definitions of concepts
  • Taxonomies, which define specialization hierarchies of concepts
  • Product Models and Knowledge Models, with or without composition.

For each of those categories the standard provides minimum requirements and guidelines. Application of the guidelines will facilitate the interoperability of systems to share or communicate about items in libraries and catalogues of concepts, knowledge and products.
