Using domain knowledge represented as ontologies for the design of domain specific architectures is a promising approach for better reusability. Tool support is essential for this approach to be effective. We present a flexible, user- guided transformation method to generate a framework architecture model from a domain model. The latter is in the form of an OWL ontology, and the former is in the form of a UML class diagram. We introduce a transformation tool that allows the user to configure mappings from the source OWL constructs of the simulation ontology to the target UML constructs of the simulation design. This user-guided approach is demonstrated on a case study that involves building a framework architecture for ontology-driven trajectory simulation development. © 2009 Simulation councils, inc.

Tool support for transformation from an OWL ontology to an HLA Object Model
ÖZDİKİŞ, Özer; DURAK, Umut; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S. (2010-03-15)
Designing simulation architectures based on domain models is a promising approach. Tools to support transformation of formalized domain models to design models are essential. Ontology languages offer a way of formally specifying the domain knowledge. We adopt a user-guided approach to model transformation, where the source is an OWL ontology and the target is an HLA Object Model, in particular, a federation object model (FOM). This paper presents a flexible transformation tool that enables the user to defin...
Process ontology development using natural language processing: a multiple case study
Gurbuz, Ozge; Rabhi, Fethi; Demirörs, Onur (2019-09-17)
Purpose Integrating ontologies with process modeling has gained increasing attention in recent years since it enhances data representations and makes it easier to query, store and reuse knowledge at the semantic level. The authors focused on a process and ontology integration approach by extracting the activities, roles and other concepts related to the process models from organizational sources using natural language processing techniques. As part of this study, a process ontology population (PrOnPo) metho...

Many domain adaptation methods are based on learning a projection or a transformation of the source and target domains to a common domain and training a classifier there, while the performance of such algorithms has not been theoretically studied yet. Previous studies proposing generalization bounds for domain adaptation relate the target loss to the discrepancy between the source and target distributions, however, do not take into account the possible effects of learning a transformation between the two do...
A domain framework approach offering default relations
Kargı, Ersin Eray; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
In order to use components that are developed for a domain, domain knowledge is required. If the default relations in a domain are offered by a framework, this can be a starting point for the application engineer as an important kind of domain knowledge. A generic design for creating and saving a domain is implemented in this thesis. This approach starts with creating a domain from components and relations among these components. The relations and components are saved once and used several times. In additio...
An architectural modeling approach with symmetric alignment of multiple concern spaces
Cetin, Semih; Altintas, N. Ilker; Şener, Cevat (2006-12-01)
Architectural modeling identifies several concerns in problem domain and associates them with design decisions in solution domain. There is, however, no commonsense on how to localize problem domain concerns and relate them to the solution domain. This paper proposes a modeling approach to address the architectural concerns in multiple concern spaces both for problem and solution domains, and align them "symmetrically ". This approach identifies the problem domain in multiple concern spaces by correlating t...
