While managers in today’s global business environments are thrusting for swifter, more flexible, and scalable decision support, technical challenges pertaining to model sharing arise due to the limited capabilities of current model representation techniques. In this research, we propose that ontologies can improve model representation and thus support sophisticated model management capabilities such as model integration and composition in distributive collaborative environments. The proposed solution extends SMML and builds upon previous literature in the semantic web to provide a model representation language that is capable of capturing model structure as well as semantics.
