    n analysing design and manufacturing tasks and their mutual interactions, it appears that the underlying information of these tasks is of the utmost importance. If this information is managed in a formalised, structured way, it can serve as a basis for the control of the design and manufacturing processes. The ontological description that is used for this purpose is elaborated upon. Significant in this respect, is the introduction of expedient differentiations in distinct aspects of the ontology.

    Based on the overall ontology, it is indicated how an ontological description of the information content can be applied to govern design and manufacturing processes.
