Communicator software

The Gellish Communicator App Welcome to the Gellish Communicator application. The Communicator software demonstrates capabilities of using Formal English or Formal Dutch (Formeel Nederlands). The Communicator can import files in Gellish Expression format and verifies their content on the correctness of the expressions. It can also export Gellish files and is intended to enable expressing and exchanging information with Gellish enabled systems. The software also enables expressing and executing queries in Gellish, thus enabling searching for any modeled information knowledge . . .

Formalized English language definition – Entry Edition

Formalized English definition base – Entry Edition The Formal English language definition Entry Edition contains a base ontology and taxonomic dictionary that defines an entry level version of Formal English. It contains the definition of a taxonomy-ontology of the fundamental kinds of relations and kinds of related things, including also their kinds of roles in relations of those kinds. It can be read and searched by Gellish enabled software, such as the Gellish Communicator, a reference application that is available . . .

Gellish open source software

Gellish.net has developed the Communicator application software. The software is an Open Source reference application that is intended for testing and demonstrating the power of application of the Gellish family of formalized languages. It is also intended as a source of software for reuse by software developers who build Gellish capabilities into existing or new applications. The software is written in Python and available from the Gellish project on GitHub.

Gellish used in SAP

A world wide operating manufacturer in the chemicals industry applied the Gellish Taxonomic Dictionary to streamline its SAP systems with equipment maintenance data and in various migration projects where data was migrated from legacy systems to SAP. Gellish acts as a common reference for standardization of the data and the taxonomy enhances the search processes of the SAP systems.

Searching and Finding

Gellish Formal Dutch was applied in a ‘proof of concept’ project for searching and finding (‘zoeken en vinden’) of product information that was executed by a group of companies of the Dutch building industry. The project demonstrated that it is possible that an application system generates one system independent query for searching for product types in catalogues of various product suppliers. The software application sent the query to the various suppliers and interpreted and combined the received answers in one . . .

Part 9: Measurement and Observations

Semantic Modeling Methodology

This document provides guidelines on the modelling and integration of time dependent measurement data and observations of properties of physical objects. It should be applied together with the guidelines on Facility Information Models (part 4) and the General Guidelines on the application of Gellish (part 7).

Part 7: General Principles and Guidelines on Gellish

Semantic Modeling Methodology

This document describes general principles of the Gellish Language and provides guidelines on how to create correct Gellish.

These are part of the criteria that are used to verify the quality of Gellish expressions as are applied in the Gellish Certification Process.

Part 6, Development of facility and product models

Semantic Modeling Methodology This document provides guidelines on the semantic modeling of facilities and their components, including their properties, processes and activities in a computer interpretable and system independent way. The resulting facility models and product models are intended to be a major step towards achieving easy access to integrated and unambiguous information and knowledge about the life-cycle of products, including design, procurement, operation and maintenance of facilities throughout their life time.

Part 5: Modeling of Activities and Processes

Semantic Modeling Methodology This document provides guidance on the modeling of sequences and dependencies of occurrences (activities, processes and events) and states. It includes also the modeling of their composition of occurrences and the roles that various physical objects play in them. It also provides guidance on the modeling of causes and effects as well as time location of occurrences and states. This enables to make such models an integral part of Facility Information Models (part 4) and supports the . . .

Part 4: Facility Information Modeling

Semantic Modeling Methodology This document describes how Facility Information Models shall be created in Gellish. The document is also applicable for Building Information Models (BIM), Process Plant Information Models, Geographic Information Models, etc. An Information models may include also documents, activities and processes and is based on definitions, taxonomies and knowledge with which it is integrated through one common language.

Part 3B: Requirements and Verification

Semantic Modeling Methodology Knowledge Modelling is the modeling of generally valid facts about kinds of things. Such kinds of things can be kinds of physical objects, but also kinds of processes, activities and events. This documents also includes a section about definitions, which is related to the document about the modeling of Dictionaries-Taxonomies (part 2). Download this file
