Abstract

In this paper, we present a generic ontology evolution approach guided by a pattern-oriented process and a quality evaluation activity. Pattern modeling aims to drive and control change application while maintaining consistency of the evolved ontology. Evaluation activity –supported by an ontology quality model– is used to guide inconsistency resolution by assessing the impact of resolution alternatives –proposed by the evolution process- on ontology quality and selecting the resolution that preserves the quality of the evolved ontology.
