Ontologies are being applied very successfully in supporting information and knowledge exchange between people and organisations. However, for many reasons, different people and organisations will tend to use different ontologies. Therefore, in order to exchange information and knowledge, either everyone must adopt the same ontology — an unlikely scenario —(More)
We have constructed a set of ontologies modelled on conceptual structures elicited from several domain experts. Protocols were collected from various experts who advise on the selection/ specification and purchase of PCs. These protocols were analysed from the perspective of both the processes and the domain knowledge to reflect each expert’s inherent(More)

The prime motivation for our research is to enable sharing and reuse of domain knowledge through the engineering and management of ontologies. We contend that there is a need to reconcile ontologies by harmonising mismatches and discrepancies that are present among them. This is a necessary task before any stakeholders can begin to share and/or reuse the(More)
Just as the World Wide Web in its current form has become the defacto medium for sharing information and data resources, the emerging Semantic Web will certainly become the common fabric and the enabling factor for knowledge sharing and collaboration. In addition to (re)using existing knowledge repositories, there will be a need to share and reuse knowledge(More)
