the way, both of these papers are on Chris Welty's home page:
In looking at these papers, I don't
see these methodologies as
being in competition. I see
it as an issue of granularity. The
welty and guaranino papers discuss
finer points of ontology
construction (identity, rigidity,
dependence) which can easily
be included in Step 4.1 which is "ensuring
that the class
hierarchy is correct". In other
words, the process is a multi-pass
Thus, I would recommend that the overaching
framework be the
Ontology 101 process with a "Welty
and Guarino" pass in step 4.
