Abstract: Recent advances in semantic technologies have seen the Web Ontology Language(OWL)[1]take a prominent place in Knowledge modelling and representation. We have attempted to combine these recent advances in semantic technologies with knowledge-based applications. In this paper, we describe how we used an OWL Ontology as a knowledge base to drive an Occupational Health Application. We take an engineering perspective on the possibility of building an OWL ontology based application and discuss the relative merits of this approach as opposed to tabular models. In particular we focus on advantages in authoring such a knowledge base and also in maintaining it. We then discuss some of the implementation challenges in engineering such applications and also possible design considerations.
