Before one starts modeling, one shall consider reuse. Is there possibly an Ontology that one can reuse, use of and that already exists. This is reasonable because one can save Costs and one might want to apply Tools that are applied for other existing Ontologies and that should also applied to our own Ontology. If one reuses an Ontology one can be sure that this Ontology has been validated by their Application. So always consider Reuse before one tries to develop something new, at least one should think about it.
Why should we consider reuse?
in order to save Costs
in order to apply Tools that are applied for other existing Ontologies also for our own Ontology
