On-To-Knowledge builds an ontology-based tool environment to improve know­ledge management, dealing with large numbers of heterogeneous, distributed, and semistructured documents typically found in large company intranets and the World-Wide Web. The project’s target results are: (i) a toolset for semantic information processing and user access; (ii) OIL, an ontology-based inference layer for the World-Wide Web; and (iii) an associated methodology and validation by industrial case studies.

On-To-Knowledge Methodology (OTKM)
In this chapter we present the On-To-Knowledge Methodology (OTKM) for introducing and maintaining ontology based knowledge management applications into enterprises with a focus on Knowledge Processes
Development of Ontology-Based Knowledge Management System for Dynamical Participation
A Ontology-based and Dynamic Participate KM Framework-OKMDP is put forward, set up the framework with the molding of information content and studied the theory and method of OKMDP development.
Ontological approach for organisational knowledge re-use in product developing environments
The theoretical aspects and applications of a novel methodology for exploiting a knowledge management editor tool to structure organisational knowledge using an ontological approach are discussed.
Ontology-Driven Knowledge Logistics Approach as Constraint Satisfaction Problem
The paper describes an approach to knowledge logistics problem based on ontology-driven methodology and constraint satisfaction / propagation technology and Compatibility of object-oriented constraint network notation with DAML+OIL formalism is considered.
Ontology Engineering Methodology
The methodology serves as a scaffold for Part B “Ontology Engineering” of the handbook and shows where more specific concerns of ontology engineering find their place and how they are related in the overall process.
First Results of a Semantic Web Technologies Evaluation
The design considerations and set-up of filed experiments with Semantic Web tools are discussed, and some result from field studies that was carried out within the EU IST-1999-10132 On-ToKnowledge project are given.
Ontology engineering and routing in distributed knowledge management applications
The thesis demonstrates that ontology-based distributed knowledge management is feasible from an organizational as well as technical point of view and proposes solutions to some of the arising challenges.
Semantic Web Application Areas
Some areas for application of the semantic web will provide intelligent access to heterogeneous, distributed information, enabling software products (agents) to mediate between user needs and the information sources available are described.
A Study Investigating Typical Concepts and Guidelines for Ontology Building
A set of guiding principles is presented to help ontology developers and also inexperienced users to answer questions about what are the main components of an ontology and how it works.
Ontology-Based Access to Distributed Statistical Databases
In this paper we describe some commonly-required functionality for constructing, visualizing and manipulating ontologies. These make extensive use of XML and DOM technologies. The functions developed


Ontologies - a silver bullet for knowledge management and electronic commerce
This second editionsystematically introduces the notion of ontologies to the non-expert reader and demonstrates in detail how to apply this conceptual framework for improved intranet retrieval of
Knowledge Processes and Ontologies
An approach for ontology-based knowledge management (KM) that includes a tool suite and a methodology for developing ontological-based KM systems is presented, illustrated by CHAR (Corporate History AnalyzeR), a KM system for corporate history analysis.
OIL: An Ontology Infrastructure for the Semantic Web
The authors present OIL, a proposal for a joint standard for specifying and exchanging ontologies, which is needed for knowledge sharing and reuse on the Semantic Web.
OntoEdit: Collaborative Ontology Development for the Semantic Web
This paper focuses on collaborative development of ontologies with OntoEdit which is guided by a comprehensive methodology.
A Roadmap to Ontology Specification Languages
This paper establishes a common framework to compare the expressiveness and reasoning capabilities of "traditional" ontology languages (Ontolingua, OKBC, OCML, FLogic, LOOM) and "web-based" ontological languages, and concludes with the results of applying this framework to the selected languages.
Enabling knowledge representation on the Web by extending RDF schema
It is shown how RDFS can be extended to include a more expressive knowledge representation language, Ontology Inference Layer (OIL), which would enrich it with the required additional expressivity and the semantics of that language.
Patel-Schneider: OIL: Ontology Infrastructure to Enable the Semantic Web
OIL is a proposal for such a standard enabling the semantic web, i.e. information with machine processable semantics, based on existing proposals such as OKBC, XOL and RDFS, and enriches them with necessary features for expressing rich ontologies.

An Environment for Merging and Testing Large Ontologies
A new merging and diagnostic ontology environment called Chimaera is presented, which was developed to address issues in the context of HPKB and some initial tests of its effectiveness in merging tasks are reported on.
Knowledge Engineering and Management: The CommonKADS Methodology
The CommonKADS methodology, developed over the last decade by an industry-university consortium led by the authors, is used and makes as much use as possible of the new UML notation standard.
