Reuse in the development process of TOSCANA systems
TOSCANA is a graphical tool that supports the human-centered interactive processes of conceptual knowledge processing. The generality of the approach makes TOSCANA a universal tool applicable to a variety of domains. Only the so-called conceptual scales have to be designed for new applications. The presentation shows how the use of abstract scales allows the reuse of formerly defined conceptual scales. Furthermore it describes how thesauri and conceptual taxonomies can be integrated in the generation of conceptual scales.
