An ontology expresses a common understanding of a domain that serves as a basis of communication between people or systems, and enables knowledge sharing, reuse of domain knowledge, reasoning and thus problem solving. In Technology-Enhanced Learning, especially in Intelligent Tutoring Systems and Adaptive Learning Environments, ontologies serve as the basis of adaptivity and personalization. For mathematics learning and similarly structured domains, ontologies and their usage for adaptive learning are well understood and established. This contribution presents an ontology for the industrial shop floor (the area of a factory where operatives assemble products) and illustrates its usage in several learning services.
