Objectives of the FND FCT

The primary goal of the Foundations FCT is to maintain the fundamental underpinnings of the FIBO ontologies. To do this, we maintain the content of the FIBO Foundations Domain. 

Use Cases

Our primary use case is to supply foundational abstractions for other FIBO FCTs. There are no direct industry use cases for the content in Foundations, though specialist areas such as Risk may be extended by industry participants ahead of other Domain FCTs making use of or extending these. 


Activities in support of the above are primarily the review and implementation of Jiras for FND. These are usually raised by other FCTs in response to requirements for foundational abstractions needed to support their content. 

When appropriate, these reviews include some semantic analysis of proposed changes in Foundations. This is to ensure conceptual integrity and reusability of the released FIBO ontologies in Foundations. 

The FND FCT meets weekly to review and triage new and existing Jiras, discuss and agree actions for non-trivial ones, and work on Foundations concepts in areas needed by other FCTs as these become known, for example for Ratings, for temporality and so on.
