It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
Taxonomy is basically 'organizing and categorizing information'.
In terms of interface design, you need to know what the interface is interacting with. The advantage of the taxonomy is you have a structure to design for.
