Whose "Fault" Is This? Untangling Domain Concepts in Ontology Design Patterns

Whose "Fault" Is This? Untangling Domain Concepts in Ontology Design Patterns
Whose "Fault" Is This? Untangling Domain Concepts in Ontology Design Patterns
Certain ontology domain concepts are difficult to model due to the complexity of their definition, the number of roles that they fulfill in the ontology or the different types of relationships they participate in. To assist ontologists in overcoming some of these challenges, a comparative analysis of two Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs) has been carried out. As a result, terminology is introduced to describe the role and certain reusability characteristics of domain concepts in these ODPs. These findings provide a series of implications that make explicit certain modeling decisions that previously were implicit in the ontology modeling field. Our contribution is illustrated with a concrete example of a real world use case scenario that will benefit from the outcome of this study.

Abstract

Certain ontology domain concepts are difficult to model due to the complexity of their definition, the number of roles that they fulfill in the ontology or the different types of relationships they participate in. To assist ontologists in overcoming some of these challenges, a comparative analysis of two Ontology Design Patterns (ODPs) has been carried out. As a result, terminology is introduced to describe the role and certain reusability characteristics of domain concepts in these ODPs. These findings provide a series of implications that make explicit certain modeling decisions that previously were implicit in the ontology modeling field. Our contribution is illustrated with a concrete example of a real world use case scenario that will benefit from the outcome of this study.
