The Furniture Sector Ontology is used in different European projects to have a common understanding in the semantic for the terminologies used in the furniture related domain in different platforms. We can mention NIMBLE, eFactory, iPRODUCE as the latest projects.
We must highlight the great function of the use of a common ontology in the B2B Marketplace platform specific to the Home and furnishing sector.
This means to have a common vocabulary that includes the most used concepts and properties in the furniture sector industry as well as its main relationships.

The funStep ontology is continuolsy updated covering new terminologies according to diferent stakeholders and production new specifications for their catalogue offer.
