With advancements in technology and big data availability, industries are struggling with data interoperability and knowledge representation. Ontologies have a great potential to solve such problems. However, the lack of standardisation prevents the widespread adoption of ontologies in different manufacturing domains. We investigate the possibility of preparing ontology alignment for manufacturing maintenance. This paper provides an overview of the available ontologies in this domain. We also provide an openly available alignment between IMAMO (maintenance ontology) and CDM-Core (process ontology):
