The methodology SeSKA and the
SeSKA (Seamless Structured Knowledge Acquisition) [10,
enhances integration of development, knowledge and terminology. Development
is viewed as iterative modelling. SeSKA is supported by a graphical tool
SOOKAT (Structured Object-Oriented Knowledge Acquisition Tool).
Models used in SOOKAT, consisting of object classes, are the following:
It is possible to instantiate a KB consisting of the IM and the DM. Inferences
can be performed through message passing within the IS, determining the
order of firing abstract rules presented in the IS to be applied to instances.
The domain model (DM)
describes the structure of a domain, consisting of concepts with attributes
The dependency graph (DG)
contains inferential dependencies between attributes of domain concepts.
The inference model (IM)
includes the structure of possible inferences, called the inference
structure (IS), augmented with informal, semi-formal and formal descriptions
