Current approaches adopting principles of Organic Computing in embedded environments, like the automotive industry, suffer from different weaknesses regarding mainly the description methodology and the intelligence of the system. This paper shows that an ontology-based description, combined with methods of MultiCriteria Decision-Making (MCDM) opens the way for practical employment of organic computing principles in technical applications. The paper presents the current implementation of our approach and indicates steps towards a complete realization of the presented principles.
