The development of new products 1 is a challenging activity that demands highly flexible and adaptable enterprises. Approaches, such as flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) [1], concurrent engineering (CE) [2] and design for manufacturing (DfM) [3] among others, aim to contribute to this challenge. Nevertheless, these approaches are centered in previously(More)
Semantic engineering is currently being adopted to support the knowledge-management processes needed by organizational users for decision-making and task-intensive knowledge activities. Such optional engineering strategies consider that some systems, such as the Knowledge Support System (KSS) fulfill the needs of the knowledge user, by providing the(More)
Self-adaptation has been proposed as a viable solution to alleviate the management burden that is induced by the dynamic nature and increasing complexity of computer systems. In this context, architectural-based self-adaptation has emerged as one of the most promising approaches to automatically manage such systems, resorting to a control loop that includes(More)
Organizations are demanding an efficacious knowledge management. Consequently, they are increasing their system innovation investments to turn information into useful knowledge for decision making obtained from heterogeneous Knowledge Sources (KSOs) such as databases, documents, and even ontologies. Methodological Resources (MRs) for the required knowledge(More)
