ENGINEERING TIME IN AN ONTOLOGY FOR POWER SYSTEMS THROUGH THE ASSEMBLING OF MODULAR ONTOLOGIES

Jorge Santos, Luís Braga, Anthony G. Cohn

Abstract

In this paper we investigate how timeless ontologies such as DFault, an ontology for fault diagnosis in power transmission networks can be re-engineered to include temporal entities. We propose a methodology, FONTE (Factorising ONTology Engineering complexity), that allows this complex process to be factored by dividing the problem into parts: modelling the domain concepts ontology (atemporal and aspatial), modelling or acquiring the temporal and /or spatial ontology, and finally producing the target ontology by assembling these modular ontologies via a semi-automated process.
