TAGOOn+ Tool

Table of contents



Description

TAGOOn+ is a tool for the generation and integration of organizational ontologies that supports: 1) the automatic generation of organizational ontologies coming from models expressed with i*, Tropos and Service-Oriented i*, and 2) the automatic integration of those organizational ontologies with generic or domain ontologies.

Main Purpose of the Tool

1) It supports the automatic generation of organizational ontologies coming from organizational models expressed with i*, Tropos and Service-Oriented i* (as part of our proposed methodology for integrating i* variants). In order to carry out the ontology generation, the ontological metamodel for these variants (OntoiStar+) has been developed. Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) ideas have been
applied to perform the transformation from organizational models (described in the iStarML format) to ontologies derived from OntoiStar+.

2) It supports the automatic integration of enriched organizational models with generic or domain ontologies (as part of our proposed methodology for enriching organizational models with semantic annotations). In order to carry out the integration, semantic annotation suggestions have been proposed, which are the guidelines to annotate organizational models with concepts from generic
or domain ontologies. The iStarML format has been extended with the attribute “sannotation” to store semantic annotations for each model element.
