What is TAS Thesaurus Manager?
TAS Thesaurus Manager is a thesaurus builder module that facilitates the optimization and sophistication of the TAS Enterprise Search. Thesaurus Manager enables the user to define and verify conceptual relationships between words, making it easier to get relevant results.
Possible relations that can be defined between the words:
- correct form
- narrower term
- broader term
- stop list
What are the benefits of using TAS Thesaurus Manager?
The thesaurus builder module allows for much more relevant search results on the TAS Enterprise Search interface, because the quantity and quality of the defined word pairs impact the successfulness of the search process.
By establishing relations in Thesaurus Manager, the search process can be greatly optimized, since there is no need to perform multiple searches for similar terms (eg: USA-> United States of America> United States of America).
How does TAS Thesaurus Manager work?
In the interface, any user can add a new word pair and relation to be annotated. After the annotation the given word pair can be approved and deployed. After deployment the next query performed in TAS Enterprise Search will be realized taking into account the created word pair.
- Annotator: basic role, can handle word pairs added to annotation
- Reviewer: Has annotator rights, can also accept previous annotations
- Deployer: has both annotator and reviewer role, can install the already adopted spellings for sharp use (eg search)
- Expertise: regardless of the roles, you can assign a domain to each user that matches the categories that can be assigned to word pairs. This ensures that the pair of words in a given category gets to the right user.
