MODELMOSAIC®: Ontology Configuration & Capture Toolkit

The MODELMOSAIC® toolkit is ontology configuration and capture software that provides automatic knowledge extraction from multi-source text data, allowing users to construct and visualize knowledge—in the form of ontologies and process models—via an easy to use graphical interface.

The MODELMOSAIC® toolkit is based on the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the IDEF5 ontology description capture method, the government standard for object oriented modeling.  The toolkit also provides IDEF3 process modeling, and future development will add the IDEFØ function modeling method.

The MODELMOSAIC® knowledge management toolkit is intuitive and easy to use technology that allows knowledge engineers to extract, visualize, analyze, and merge ontologies in support of many types of knowledge engineering scenarios.  The MODELMOSAIC® toolkit provides the basis for sustainable knowledge management that encompasses the entire knowledge life cycle:  from capture/discovery to representation, analysis, validation, storage, retrieval, delivery, and evolution over extended periods of time.
