MOTARA, Yusuf M  and  VAN DER SCHYFF, Karl. A functional ontology for information systems. SACJ [online]. 2019, vol.31, n.2, pp.57-76. ISSN 2313-7835.

The ontology of information systems - the way in which knowledge claims, and thus theories, are conceptualised and represented - is of particular importance in the information systems field, due to its reliance on relations between entities. This work proposes, demonstrates, and evaluates an alternative ontology for theory description which is arguably more powerful and more expressive than the dominant ontological model.CATEGORIES: · Applied computing ~ Enterprise ontologies, taxonomies and vocabularies · Software and its engineering ~ System modeling languages

Keywords : ontology; theory building; functional design.
