AbstractOntology Engineering is currently advancing from a pure research topic to
real applications. This state of the art is emphasized by the wide range of European
projects with major industry involvement and, in the same time, by the evergrowing
interest of small and medium size enterprizes asking for consultancy in
this domain. A core requirement in all of these efforts is, however, the availability
of proved and tested methods which allow an efficient engineering of high-quality
ontologies, be that by reuse, new building or automatic extraction methods. Several
elaborated methodologies, which aid the development of ontologies for particular
application requirements, emerged in the last decades. Nevertheless, in order for
ontologies to be built and deployed at a large scale, beyond the boundaries of the
academic community, one needs not only technologies and tools to assist the engineering
process, but also means to estimate and control its overall costs. These
issues are addressed only marginally by current engineering approaches though
their importance is well recognized in the community. Different approaches exist
to estimate costs for engineering processes. We will present the parametric cost
estimation model ONTOCOM and its alignment with the DILIGENT engineering
methodology. Based on the resulting cost function some analytical evaluations of
application scenarios for the DILIGENT model are provided.
