In this paper we propose a high-level scheme that assists ontology engineers develop appropriate ontological frame- works. By ontological frameworks we mean those struc- tures that specify particular phases and also provide imple- mented components for developing ontologies. Based on the i* conceptual modeling framework, our proposed scheme guides ontology engineers by customizing a suitable onto- logical framework based on their preferences and their spe- cific domain necessities. In the proposed scheme, We specify the users of an ontological framework, their high-level soft- goals as well as the goals that contribute to these softgoals. We exploit business processes and bind them to the goals in order to implement the framework.
