Companies in high-wage countries face the so called polylemma of production. It consists out of two dilemmas. On the one hand the dilemma of value vs. planning orientation and on the other the dilemma scale vs. scope. To reduce the dilemma of planning vs. value orientation cognitive technical systems are a promising approach. To enact cognitive behavior a technical system has to incorporate an extensive knowledge base. This paper deals with the software architecture of such a system, the concept of a knowledge compiler which is able to transform different knowledge representation formalisms and the design for the ontology which is the foundation of the knowledge base.
