Murshed, Md. Ahsan-ul and Singh, Ramanjit (2005) Evaluation and Ranking of Ontology Construction Tools. UNSPECIFIED. (In Press)
The emphasis of reusing domain knowledge in system development makes ontology the most important disciplines in the information system industry at present. Many domain specific ontology editors are currently available for developing ontologies. However, selecting the most appropriate editor is a challenge because each ontology construction initiative requires its own budget, time, and resources. Therefore, to overcome this challenge, we propose a criterion to evaluate ontology construction tools. We define evaluation criteria such as functionality, reusability, data storage, complexity, association, scalability, resilience, reliability, robustness, learnability, availability, efficiency, and visibility. Then, on the basis of criteria, we propose a technique to rank ontology tools and finally, we evaluate three ontology construction editors based on the ranking technique.
