This paper describes a preliminary attempt at using semantic Web paradigm, especially the Web Ontology Language (OWL), for functional design knowledge representation during collaborative functional modeling in engineering design. Towards extending our previous work on behavior-driven function-environment-structure (B-FES) modeling with capabilities of knowledge sharing and distributed problem solving, an ontology-based scheme for B-FES modeling, called B-FES/o, is proposed for semantic Web applications. As an illustration, the functional model of an automatic assembly system for manufacturing electronic connectors has used OWL format as its knowledge representation scheme.
