Lean Ontology Development: An Ontology Development Paradigm based on Continuous Innovation

Joel Cummings, Deborah Stacey

Abstract

This position paper explores the utility of adapting the principles of Lean Startup and Agile software development to the development of ontologies. A main thesis is that ontology development should be approached in a manner similar to software development. Lean Ontology Development (LOD) principles are defined and current ontology development methodologies are discussed in relation to these principles. The principles defined are Continuous Development, Minimum Viable Ontology via Prioritization, Community Evaluation, Ontology as API, Reuse, and Sustainability.
