In the world of commercial computing, consumers are being inundated with baroque, bloated, and difficult-to-use computing applications, tools that use computational methods and technologies to perform tasks. Ensuring that planned features required for market competitiveness enhance a computing application without these side effects first requires that we understand how these features contribute to the overall design and conceptual integrity of the application. We present a research framework, methodologies, and artifacts for measuring the conceptual integrity of a computing application using its embedded theory of the world (its ontology) and show how conceptual integrity can be used to inform software design to ensure its usefulness to its users.
