The current gradual digitization emphasizes the needs for easy, faultless, and flexible data exchange. However, the main obstacle is not an exchange of messages but resides in sharing a mutual understanding of the message meaning. Thus, Semantic Web technologies are exploited for facilitation of the data exchange in the approach presented in this paper. Furthermore, the presented solution is based on the modeling of system interfaces and messages instead of designing and implementing clumsy shared not a versatile data model. The proposed solution also benefits from the exploitation of SPARQL and SWRL during the integration of a new component into the system.
