Abstract: The key problem of successful developing of the software intensive system (SIS) is adequate conceptual interactions of designers during the early stages of development. The success of the development can be increased by using of a project ontology, the creation of which is being embedded into the processes of conceptual solving the project tasks and specifying the project solutions. The essence of the conceptual design is a specification of conceptualization. The main suggestion of this paper is a creation of the project ontology in the form of a specialized SIS that supports the conceptual activity of designers. For creation of the project ontology of such type, the instrumental shell was developed. For creation of the project ontology the designers should fill this shell with the adequate information. The basic reasons for evolving the content of the ontology are negative results of testing of the used text units according to the conformity to the ontology. Such shell (in any state of its using) includes the created ontology and its working version (working dictionary) which helps to manage the informational flows, to register the life cycles of the conceptual units and to provide the representativity of their usages.
