Abstract: Ontology-based models propose a new modelling paradigm for the industry. In this study, we explore the maturity of ontology-based models for industrial applications from a special point of view: the execution of business rules. Indeed, expressing and implementing rules nowadays is a crucial issue. We therefore propose an overview of the use of OWL-DL/SWRL approaches in the industry, as well as a critical overview of the execution of SWRL rules on an industrial use case in the nuclear industry.
