D.F. Batzias, C.G. Siontorou & D.K. Sidiras
This work presents a knowledge based approach for enhancing traceability within a biomass to bioethanol route. A methodological framework, under the form of an algorithmic procedure, is suggested for structuring/operating a local/internal Knowledge Base (KB), which includes (i) fault tree synthesis/analysis (FTS/A), (ii) a set of standards, extracted from a widely recognized standardization organization, (iii) referenced documents from other similar organizations, and (iv) information from technical/ scientific articles not yet covered by an official standard....
