Summary: We present an approach that integrates a description logic based knowledge representation system into the optimization process. A description logic defines concepts, roles (properties) and object instances for relational data, which enables one to reason about complex objects and their relations. We outline a relational knapsack problem, which utilizes the knowledge base during optimization. Furthermore, we present a genetic algorithm to outline an approximate algorithm for a heuristic solution.
