Title
Understanding, building and using ontologies

Abstract
Defends the thesis of the independence between domain knowledge and problem-solving knowledge, against the dominance of the so-called interaction problem, to dispute the feasibility of a single domain ontology shared by a number of different applications. Reusability across multiple tasks or methods can and should be systematically pursued even when modelling knowledge related to a single task or method. Discusses how the principles of formal ontology and ontological engineering can be used in the practice of knowledge engineering, focusing on the interplay between general ontologies, method ontologies and application ontologies, and on the role of ontologies in the knowledge engineering process. Stresses the role of domain analysis
