Archimate to OWL

Archimate to OWL is a plugin to popular Archi editor.

General description

The software explorates the model and based on element type generates on fly:

  • classes, if referenced
  • object properties (equivalent to Relationship)
  • individuals corresponding to diagram elements
  • relations between individuals

Limitations

It is a prototype version with several limitations.

  • Only partial ontology of ArchiMate language is generated, comprising only those elements, which were referenced in the model
  • In Archi relationships are reified and can be attributed with names and properties. This information is supressed, as realtionships are transformed into object properties.
  • At present properties are ignored
