    This paper presents the result of the research that compares two previous and separate efforts of the authors to develop engineering design ontologies with a longer-term aim to produce a useable and theoretical sound ontology. The research methodology adopted was to examine each of the concepts and relations contained within each of the ontologies, Design Ontology, EDIT, with respect to the other. The comparison process resulted in examination and evaluation of both ontologies, with a few minor changes resulting from this. Also the importance and need for two different views, one which is theoretical sound, while another that is applicable is recognised and argued.
