The thesis of this paper is to present and discuss the scalability and reusability capabilities of DOGMA, an ontology modeling approach. Ontologies are repositories of domain knowledge and essential for knowledge management in organizations and for achieving interoperation among information systems. In the DOGMA ontology server architecture we implement ontologies as classical database resources separating the "fact base" from the constraints, rules, derivations etc. that commit an application… Expand
AN ARCHITECTURE FRAMEWORK OF ONTOLOGY DEVELOPMENT AND DEPLOYMENT
ABSTRACT This paper identifies requirements for an ontology development platform to facilitate methodical ontology engineering and ontology application development. It introduces the DOGMA ontologyExpand
Towards Methodological Principles for Ontology Engineering.
TLDR
The main goal of this thesis is to present methodological principles for ontology engineering to guide ontology builders towards building ontologies that are both highly reusable and usable, easier to build, and smoother to maintain. Expand
OntoCAPE - A (re)usable ontology for computer-aided process engineering
TLDR
It is argued that a useful ontology must simultaneously strive for usability and reusability and explain how these goals are achieved by OntoCAPE. Expand
Reusing ontologies on the Semantic Web: A feasibility study
TLDR
The need for a context- and task-sensitive treatment of ontologies is emphasized, both from an engineering and a usage perspective, and the typical phases of reuse processes which could profit considerably from such an approach are identified. Expand
On Using Conceptual Data Modeling for Ontology Engineering
TLDR
An ontology engineering-framework that enables reusing conceptual modeling approaches in modeling and representing ontologies, and an ontology-engineering tool that implements the ideas presented in the paper. Expand
Overview on OntoCAPE
TLDR
Having established the scientific background of ontology engineering, version 2.0 of the ontology OntoCAPE is presented, which can be characterized as a formal, heavyweight ontology, which is represented in the OWL modeling language. Expand
Extending the DOGMA framework in view of multilingual ontology integration
We present extensions to the current DOGMA ontology engineering framework so that the integration of ontologies can be better coped with. Important issues such as context, multilinguality andExpand
Ontology-Based Customer Complaint Management
TLDR
This paper proposes the construction of an ontology that captures the core knowledge of the customer complaint domain and shows how the extensibility of a complaint platform can be simplified and managed. Expand
An Evaluation of Description Logic for the Development of Product Models
TLDR
This paper first analyzes the requirements for the development of structured knowledge representation models for manufacturing products using ontologies, then explores how these requirements can be satisfied through the levels of logical formalisms and expressivity of a structuredknowledge representation model. Expand
An Analysis of Description Logic Augmented with Domain Rules for the Development of Product Models
TLDR
This paper first analyzes the requirements for the development of structured knowledge representation models for manufacturing products, then explores how these requirements can be satisfied through the levels of logical formalisms and expressivity of a structuredknowledge representation model.

Ontology versioning on the Semantic Web
TLDR
Inspired by the work done in database schema versioning and program interface versioning, this paper will propose building blocks for the most important aspects of a versioning mechanism, i.e., ontology identification and change specification. Expand
Practical Experiences in Trading Off Ontology Usability and Reusability
TLDR
This article built a common ontology to allow knowledge sharing among several applications in the domain of air campaign planning and confirmed previous findings in the knowledge acquisition literature: it is difficult to simultaneously obtain high usability and reusability. Expand
Toward principles for the design of ontologies used for knowledge sharing?
  • T. Gruber
  • Computer Science
  • Int. J. Hum. Comput. Stud.
  • 1995
TLDR
The role of ontology in supporting knowledge sharing activities is described, and a set of criteria to guide the development of ontologies for these purposes are presented, and it is shown how these criteria are applied in case studies from the design ofOntologies for engineering mathematics and bibliographic data. Expand
Formalising Ontologies and Their Relations
TLDR
This work presents a formal account of ontologies that is intended to support knowledge sharing through precise characterisations of relationships such as compatibility and refinement, and takes an algebraic approach, in which ontologies are presented as logical theories. Expand
Overview of Knowledge Sharing and Reuse Components: Ontologies and Problem-Solving Methods
TLDR
An overview of approaches for ontologies and problem-solving methods is given, which can be viewed as complementary entities that can be used to configure new knowledge systems from existing, reusable components. Expand
Ontologies: principles, methods and applications
TLDR
This paper outlines a methodology for developing and evaluating ontologies, first discussing informal techniques, concerning such issues as scoping, handling ambiguity, reaching agreement and producing definitions, and considers, a more formal approach. Expand
A Framework for Supervised Conceptualizing
In this paper, we introduce a framework allowing users to conceptualize by both constructing and supervising the evolution of an ontology. Because of the various discussions around the termsExpand
Ontology integration: Experiences with medical terminologies
TLDR
The paper reviews the formal and conceptual tools employed in this task, the most significant results obtained, and discusses two case studies. Expand
Integrating Medical Terminologies with ONIONS Methodology
TLDR
An application of the ONIONS methodology for integrating the context-dependent conceptualizations underlying conceptually heterogeneous terminology systems to the medical domain is described with an example extracted from the UMLS system. Expand
Mediators over ontology-based information sources
TLDR
The querying and answering process in a model for providing integrated and unified access to multiple information sources of the kind of Web catalogs is studied and algorithms for handling the main tasks of the mediator are presented. Expand
