In order to exchange design information between (human) agents, some ontology is required to establish a common understanding of terms. Design faces special challenges with respect to ontologies: multiple participants take part in the design process, each with their own outlook on the world and requirements on the information they need; the design evolves throughout the design process during which concepts are created and changed; the design must meet requirements of many different kinds (from informal to legal); and the knowledge of the problem and the domain changes.
