Nowadays, the wide adoption of affordable ICT hardware and software solutions has fundamentally changed how product design information is being created, shared, stored and retrieved. Due to numerous issues related to heterogeneous system implementation and design information retrieval, ontology has been identified as a feasible modeling solution for rich design information and knowledge representation. From the literature, ontology has been widely applied in various areas of design engineering, both in the academia and industry applications. In line with the latest development in both fields, this paper attempt to provide the status quo on ontology applications for design information and knowledge management. We report our reviews and findings in a number of perspectives, that includes ontology engineering, major applications of ontology in design engineering and the state of ontology adoption in the industry. Based on these outcomes, a number of challenges, research issues and potential directions of research concerning the application of ontology in design engineering have been discussed and suggested
