We present a framework for semi‑automatically acquiring domain knowledge necessary for building light‑weight, application ontologies. The approach adopts active learning for semantic annotation of knowledge roles that have been derived from the CommonKADS methodology. We discuss the framework advantages by implementing a light‑ weight, application ontology for a knowledge management application in a technical domain.


Keywords: knowledge acquisition, CommonKADS, knowledge roles, lightweight ontologies, active learning, predictive maintenance
