We developed an approach for optimal indoor transportation of assets based on an ad-hoc suitability network. The approach tailors indoor transportation towards the ‘needs’ of production assets, as it considers objects’ affordances and spatial suitability in respect to productivity and efficiency. We realized a Linked Data approach as a spatial graph database, comprising manufacturing data on an application ontology, linking the indoor manufacturing environment and a graph-based network. For optimal transportation, an ad-hoc network is generated when a path needs to be found and transportation necessities and disturbances present in the environment are considered at the time of the path calculation. The results of the optimal transportation with respect to affordances of the manufacturing environment based on linked data and an evaluation of computational complexity are presented in detail.
