Hi all,    (01)

I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me by sharing some thoughts on 
and/or experiences of using ontological development methods. I am about to 
embark on the development of a business related ontology and would like to use 
an appropriate method to provide credibility and guidance to the development 
process. Also using a method would help the members of the team who are 
relatively new to this.     (02)

The three methods I am considering are:
* OTK method - On-to-Knowledge
* Methontology
* Ushold and King    (03)

The source for each method comes from the publication by Springer - Ontological 
Engineering.     (04)

The ontology will be developed in protégé v4 and will support software 
developers, vendors and the construction of enterprise knowledge bases. We also 
expect the ontology to evolve incrementally but I would like to have a 
recognised method to support the design and review activities.    (05)

What would be useful would be any comments on the methods - I have not used any 
of the three - or suggestions to other methods to consider.    (06)

Thanks in advance    (07)
