Concept similarity in Symontos: an enterprise ontology management tool

ABSTRACT
The possibility of assessing the similarity between concepts is growing in importance. Among the primary reasons, there is the development of the Net Economy that requires a high level of computer support and exibility in doing business. In business transactions, similarity plays an important role. It is constantly used whenever a certain good or service is not available with the required characteristics. Then a substitute may be accepted, as far as it is sufficiently close to what was originally required. In this paper we propose a method for evaluating concept simi- larity. The work has been performed within the SymOntos project concerning the development of a symbolic ontology management system, where concepts are defined in accordance with a frame-oriented approach.
