ONTOTracED: A Framework to Capture and Trace Ontology Development Processes

Abstract

In the last two decades several methodologies to assist the ontology development process have been reported in the literature. However, despite important advances, there are no computational tools supporting them yet. Thus, when an ontology development process ends, the things that remain are just design products (e.g., competency questions, class diagrams, implementations, etc.), without an explicit representation of how they were obtained. This paper presents a framework meant to explicitly capture and trace ontology development processes (the activities carried out, the actors executing them, etc.), along with their associated products.
