In this demo we present the SOMM system that resulted from an ongoing collaboration between Siemens and the University of Oxford. The goal of this collaboration is to facilitate design and management of ontologies that capture conceptual information models underpinning various industrial applications. SOMM supports engineers with little background on semantic technologies in the creation of such ontologies and in populating them with data. SOMM implements a fragment of OWL 2 RL extended with a form of integrity constraints for data validation, and it comes with support for schema and data reasoning, as well as for ontology integration. We demonstrate functionality of SOMM on two scenarios from energy and manufacturing domains.
