Software Tools for Ontology Development

Valeriy Nikolaevich Dolzhenkov
2020 International Journal of Advanced Trends in Computer Science and Engineering  
Based on an expert survey, the main directions of the use of ontologies in the education system, the problems of implementing the ontological approach in the education system, as well as the criteria for  ...  choosing software tools for ontology development are determined.  ...  Thus, the tools as a whole are similar in functionality but have differences in the internal way of building a knowledge base.  ...

Emerging Techniques and Tools [chapter]

Ed Waltz
2010 Estimating Impact  
International interventions require unconventional approaches to modeling and analysis. According to Alberts et al. (2007, p. 5), the characteristics of intervention problems include: 1.  ...  In such situations, analysts and planners need to follow a set of principles that are very different from those of situations with unified management structure, a clear objective and a situation understood  ...  (This process is the beginning of internal model validation: building confidence in the underlying theory on which the model is based.) 4.  ...

SimStudio: a Next Generation Modeling and Simulation Framework

Mamadou K. Traoré
2008 Proceedings of the First International ICST Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques for Communications Networks and Systems  
From a software perspective, SimStudio is a middleware for the federation of simulators and the collaborative building of simulations.  ...  SimStudio is an operational framework that must serve to capitalize theoretical advances in Modeling and Simulation (M&S) as well as to gather M&S tools and make them accessible through a web browser.  ...  We see this theory as an axiomatic mathematical and computational approach which must be supported by a technological operational framework that allows rapid prototyping and can be used for "in silico"  ...

An Open Extensible Tool Environment for Event-B [chapter]

Jean-Raymond Abrial, Michael Butler, Stefan Hallerstede, Laurent Voisin
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The reason for this that modelling is an exploratory activity that requires ingenuity in order to arrive at a meaningful model.  ...  In this article we present a modelling tool that seamlessly integrates modelling and proving similar to what is offered today in modern integrated development environments for programming.  ...  More Other plug-ins currently under development in RODIN include a petri-net based model checker for an integration of B and the π-calculus, documentation tools for B models, graphical animation tools,  ...

Simulating Cyber-Physical Energy Systems: Challenges, Tools and Methods

Peter Palensky, Edmund Widl, Atiyah Elsheikh
2014 IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man & Cybernetics. Systems  
Using a characteristic test model, the scalability of the two approaches is analyzed.  ...  This paper describes the main challenges of continuous time-based and discrete event-based models of such cyber-physical energy systems.  ...  In this situation the usage of an equation-based approach becomes more suitable, since GridLAB-D itself offers no generic tools for physical modeling in general.  ...

Harnessing Theories for Tool Support

Zhiming Liu, Vladimir Mencl, Anders P. Ravn, Lu Yang
2006 Second International Symposium on Leveraging Applications of Formal Methods, Verification and Validation (isola 2006)  
The tools therefore need to integrate sophisticated checkers, generators and transformations. A feasible approach to ensure high quality of such add-ins is to base them on sound formal foundations.  ...  The paper concludes with a discussion of feasibility of developing the proposed add-ins and of the conditions for such extensions to be actually used.  ...  This theory, which is called rCOS [13, 4] and is based on the UTP framework [15] , forms the basis for our analysis of what should be feasible in a further enrichment of a tool like MasterCraft.  ...
