We propose adding two additional steps to OWL ontology development and offer tools supporting it. A so-called PURO background model of an example situation to be covered by the ontology is first created, then a seed of the ontology is generated automatically from it, allowing users to choose suitable modeling style and import the ontology seed into a common ontology editor where it can be finalized. Using PURO as intermediary model should enable better collaboration, documentation and early detection of design problems. The paper focuses on OBOWLMorph: a tool for ontology generation from a PURO model.
