Thanks for that example. I second what John Sowa said, the key is to know what is really going on in the business, and to translate that into a suitable structured notation.|
Jack, you mentioned the idea of fit-for-purpose ontology, but I saw no mention of the intended purpose of the 'ontology' (aka stunning semantic model) that you built was for?
In my experience, most people who say they want an ontology don't really know why, other than it seems like a good idea. There are many possible uses, but you can't build a fit for purpose ontology w/o a purpose in mind!
It would be a great addition to your story, how the client actualy made USE of the ontology/semantic model you delivered.
