The incessant need of the industry to optimize processes due to market demands derived in a huge investment on information communication technologies implementation during last decades, in the industrial automation domain. This caused the implementation of paradigms as service-oriented or event-driven architectures in factories, used for wide data integration. Moreover, the use of knowledge representation, within ontologies, permitted the description of system status in knowledge bases, which can be queried and updated at runtime. Due to the massive occurrence of events at any location of the enterprise, complex event processing (CEP) technologies can be used for anticipating facts that can compromise the production at shop floors. In fact, recent implementations on processing and reasoning streams of events in the Semantic Web can be applied also in the industrial automation domain because they combine CEP and SPARQL, which are technologies nowadays used by factory systems. This article describes how these technologies can support the study of the ontological system models evolution through time and an approach to bring predictability to current knowledge-based systems.
