As a kind of knowledge representation method, ontology describes knowledge and information semantically in various fields and it has been widely used in Web environment. Ontology management and ontology reuse can solve the problems of knowledge confusion and inefficient knowledge base construction when applying ontology. This paper builds an ontology management framework and presents the system data storage model, ontology maintenance method and role-based ontology collaborative definition method. On this basis, an ontology reuse method based on Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL) rule is proposed.
