The goal of the TOVE project is to develop a set of integrated ontologies for the modelling of both commercial and public enterprises. An overview of the TOVE project can be found in: Fox, M.S., (1992), "The TOVE Project: A Common-sense Model of the Enterprise", Industrial and Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence and Expert Systems, Belli, F. and Radermacher, F.J. (Eds.), Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence # 604, Berlin: Springer-Verlag, pp. 25-34.

The following ontologies have been developed to model Enterprises. For each ontology we provide a link to a paper that defines the ontology. For additional papers, please click on the research papers link in the side bar.
