Abstract: With increased global economic development, the volume of data has grown steadily over the past decade. Thus, managing, answering user’s queries and retrieving data from multiple data sources could be a significant challenge for any enterprise. Thus this paper discusses, how proper foundational-ontology-based index design can help in optimize query answering. For this purpose, we discuss our idea on the unified foundational ontology and a domain ontology based on it. We discuss several(Unified Foundational Ontology) UFO-specific indexing techniques and compare their suitabilities for different UFO-based queries.
