In preparation for generating RIF and SBVR from the Linguist, we have produced an OWL ontology for the pertinent aspects of the SBVR specification. We hope that this is helpful to others and would sincerely appreciate any corrections or comments on how to improve it. Paul
We’re having a great time using OWL to clarify and enrich the semantics of the rich model underlying the ERG. Here’s an example, FYI. If you’d like to know more (or help), please drop us a line! Overall the project will demonstrate our capabilities for transforming everyday sentences into RIF and business rule languages using SBVR extended with defeasibility and other capabilities, all modeled in the same OWL ontology.
The slides for my Business Rules Forum presentation on event semantics and focusing on events in order to simplify process definition and to facilitate more robust governance and compliance are at Event-centric BPM. After the talk I spoke with Jan Verbeek and Gartjan Grijzen of Be Informed and reviewed their software, which is excellent. They [...]
