I largely agree with this discussion of evaluating ontologies as information products based on their ability to serve IT system requirements.|
This external view of use , however, make me a bit nervous about the absence of other factors, some internal, to consider in assigning quality to development of an ontology.
WWe often phrase some of these as - Does it correctly captures intuitions of domain experts as they express intended content (aka expressivity).
We often say that a quality ontology's statements should be understandable to humans. Or we say that the ontology should be minimally redundant
1 - no unintended synonyms
2.Multiple possible meanings of concepts should be reduced so that systems & people can recognize commonalities and differences in the semantics of the concepts that they use. And so on.
Now it will turn out that such internal qualities will also serve the external needs as part of IT.
