The objective of the research presented is to develop and implement an ontological knowledge representation for Methods-Time Measurement assembly time estimation process. The knowledge representation is used to drive a decision support system that provides the user with intelligent MTM table suggestions based on assembly work instructions. Inference rules are used to map work instructions to MTM tables. An explicit definition of the assembly time estimation domain is required. The contribution of this research, in addition to the decision support system, is an extensible knowledge representation that models work instructions, MTM tables and mapping rules between the two which will enable the establishment of assembly time estimates. Further, the ontology provides an extensible knowledge representation framework for linking time studies and assembly processes.
