Abstract: After becoming a W3C Recommendation, OWL is expected to be more and more widely accepted and used. It seeks to have the same success as XML. However most people still find it difficult to create and use OWL ontologies. Even for people who do understand OWL and the logical meaning of the underlining description logic, discovering why concepts are unsatisfiable can be difficult. Most modern tableaux reasoners do not provide any explanation as to why the classes are inconsistent. This paper presents a `black boxed' heuristic approach based on identifying common errors and inferences.
