Abstract

Decision Making is an important part of the everyday lives of individuals and organizations. Many works within Computer Science have focused on supporting this process, especially by developing decision-supporting systems. We argue that for providing better support to Decision Making, it is paramount to understand the nature of a decision and of the process that leads to it. To accomplish that, in this paper, we go forward with our preliminary work in proposing a core ontology on Decision Making. Aiming at creating a well-founded ontology, we rely on the Unified Foundational Ontology (UFO), and we reuse some notions of existing ontologies on Value Proposition and Economic Preference. Besides describing the ontology, this work discusses some possible applications and compare our ontology with related works.
