Abstract

This paper proposes a method for Decision Making Documentation that is founded on a formal ontology. To do this, we first proposes an extension to DMO, a decision making ontology founded on a foundational ontology named UFO, to include concepts on on Value Proposition and Economic Preference. [Guizzardi et al. 2020] Finally, we propose a template whose slots represent concepts in the Extended DMO and should be filled with sentences in natural language representing instances of these concepts. The goal of the template is to represent the rationale in the selection alternative phase of the Decision Making. Once the slots are filled, they can be converted to an OWL ontology using gUFO, a lightweight implementation of the Unified Foundational Ontology (UFO), suitable for Semantic Web OWL 2 DL applications, to enable automatic reasoning over the document.
