ONTOLOGY CONSTRUCTION IN PRACTICE - Experiences and Recommendations from Industrial Cases

Kurt Sandkuhl, Annika Öhgren, Alexander Smirnov, Nikolay Shilov, Alexey Kashevnik

Abstract

Significant progress in ontology engineering during the last decade resulted in a growing interest in using ontologies for industrial applications. Based on case studies from different industrial domains, this paper presents experiences from ontology development and gives recommendations for industrial ontology construction projects. The recommendations include (1) using defined roles in a matrix project organisation, (2) perspectives on generalisation/specialisation strategy and ontology lifecycle phases, and (3) aspects of user participation in ontology construction.
