An approach to keep track of project knowledge in design
Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Knowledge Management and Information Sharing (IC3K/KMIS)
Design projects are cooperative activities in which several actors from several fields work together in order to rich a goal. The challenge is how to keep track of knowledge from daily work in this type of activity. Projects documents are not sufficient to be analysed to extract this type of knowledge. This paper presents techniques to acquire and represent knowledge from design projects. A specific approach has been developed in order to keep track of meetings and to link design rationale to organizations elements and to results of a project. This approach has been integrated to designers’ environment using Product Life Cycle Tool.
