Previous work has proposed the ontology-based semi-automatic generation of antipattern Bayesian Network(BN) models. The generated BN model can be used to illustrate the effects of uncertainty on antipatterns using Bayesian propagation. This can guide users in detecting particular antipattern attributes of importance based on uncertain ontological information. However, the proposed approach has been implemented in the Protege ontology editor environment and requires human intervention to specify how the BN model will be generated. The fully automated generation of ontology-based antipattern BN models still remains an open issue. SPARSE is an OWL ontology based intelligent system that assists software project managers in the antipattern detection process. In this paper, we propose the use of the resulting detected antipatterns of SPARSE, their attributes (i.e. causes, symptoms, consequences) and the ontological relationships between these attributes, in order to automatically generate BN models of the detected antipatterns. We illustrate how this approach can be implemented using an example of 8 antipattern attributes of 6 inter-related antipatterns detected using SPARSE.
