In the current preliminary phase, covered by these specifications and the project charter, an initial version of the ontology and the underlying conceptual model is developed for three use cases. Using these three uses cases as examples, these specifications document step-by step how the ontology is to be developed and shows how the problems mentioned above are to be overcome. The specification shows the conceptual model and its presentation in OWL.
Taking into consideration the document “Process and methodology for developing semantic agreements", the work identifies and gives examples of each step of the process for creating the e-procurement ontology, clearly specifying the roles of the different actors and the input required of them within the timeline of creating the ontology.
