The lifecycle of a product is managed through the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) including the integration of Product Service Systems (PSS) as well as Through-life Engineering Services. Both activities are performed by staff throughout the entire lifecycle and require the input of knowledge of different product lifecycle phases. The authors demonstrate the necessity of information exchange between the beginning of life and the middle of life on the example of NFF. The provision of the right information in the middle of life should be an information based TES which can only be achieved if the interoperability challenges are solved between the life-cycle phases. This paper demonstrates how existing semantic data integration approaches could be applied to enable the required information exchange. For that purpose, the modelling of test process related knowledge as ontology and corresponding extraction methods are presented.
