Federal Enterprise Architecture Reference Model Ontology (FEA-RMO)
The Federal Enterprise Architecture Reference Model Ontology (FEA-RMO) is a domain specific ontology of the Federal Enterprise Architecture reference models. FEA-RMO directly translates the Performance, Business, Service Component, and Technical reference models into their executable respresentation in OWL-DL.
FEA-RMO is intended to serve as a catalyst for innovation and competition for academic researchers and entrepreuners advancing Semantic Web technologies and semantic interoperability. The project team's goal was to provide execution, reasoning, and validation of four mandatory use cases over the specified ontologies using Jena2.1 as a reference implementation. The four mandatory use cases were: Shared Concept, Line of Sight, Semantic Detective, and Legisaltive and Best Practice Drivers. The project team was able to able to accomplish some, but not all, of its goals during the specified project period.
FEA-RMO's design was driven by principles of parsimony, simplicity, and utility. To ensure parsimony in the ontology, the project team included only terms and concepts defined in the reference models. To achieve simplicity and utility, the project team provided the both merged and split versions of the ontology.
Performance Reference Model
Business Reference Model
Service Component Reference Model
Technical Reference Model
Merged model does not really need instructions, except for the advice to build a new project if they have problem (see below)
