A methodology for the systematic placement of components into a hierarchical ontology is proposed. Cues taken from the Linnaean classification system for living organisms were used to generate a hierarchical ontology for organizing component terms and to create a robust procedure for adding new component terms to an existing component naming scheme. The objective of this research is to begin constructing a hierarchical ontology that is analogous to the Linnaean classification system with… CONTINUE READING
