Most of present intelligent knowledge management environments for conceptual modelling and analysis suuer, in our opinion, from mixing two representation levels: (1) a conceptual level, where domain-speciic concepts are represented (e.g., data and processes in Data-Flow Diagrams); (2) an epistemological level, where inferences are drawn from(More)
This paper describes an analyst-oriented approach to conceptual knowledge representation and reasoning based on description logics. The approach is introduced to model and analyse the static part of behavioural concepts used in application domains. Behaviours are captured in a parametric way with respect to the description logic which corresponds to the(More)

It should only help the analyst in the discovery and in the explicitation of contradictions, redundancies and hidden properties detected in the Domain Knowledge(More)
