During design phase, engineering activities typically involve large groups of people from different domains and disciplines. These differences often generate important information flows that are difficult to manage. To face these difficulties, a knowledge engineering process is necessary to structure the information and its use This article, presents a deployment of a knowledge capitalization process based on the enrichment of Methodology and tools Oriented to Knowledge based engineering… 

Figures from this paper

This paper aims to support designers to set-up and maintain KBE solutions, which address diverse product development tasks at once, and identifies a need for a framework-independent solution to formalize design knowledge and derives corresponding objectives to be fulfilled by this solution.
Sharing relevant knowledge within product development
An Open Content repository that has a formal knowledge structure, but which allows users to share across organisational boundaries, could solve existing knowledge search problems but will still need to have boundaries set for its contents to stay relevant.
Knowledge-based Engineering: An Efficient Method for Knowledge Processing
A detailed intuitive method is discussed that addresses the issue of knowledge processing in KBE, based on the system engineering approach and a very logical classification of the design knowledge that shortens the duration of the knowledge processing and facilitates the knowledge encoding phase.
A troubleshooting process planning using knowledge base and distributed database approach
An approach of knowledge acquisition and modeling for troubleshooting process planning for automotive braking system using an object oriented programming language and employs a modeling approach consisting of three sub-models: object model, functional model, and dynamic model.
A case study of how knowledge based engineering tools support experience re-use
The study revealed weaknesses in the process steps for experience feedback which can be used to improve KBE applications further and a proposed framework is presented to analyze the capturing and use of experience in a company’s processes identifying gaps and propose improvements.
Knowledge Based Engineering: Notion, Approaches and Future Trends
The objective of the review paper is to identify the foundation and research issues of KBE in the light of parametric, function based, web-oriented modeling.
A new process-based ontology for KBE system implementation: application to inspection process planning
This paper focuses in the definition of a new ontology (Onto-Process) and the resulting informal model. The developed ontology constitutes an improvement to other ontologies since it covers the
Conceptual principles and ontology for a KBE implementation in inspection planning
The paper considers the knowledge elicitation phase, that is, the knowledge identification before its formalisation and implementation in a platform, using a combination of IDEF0 diagrams and a text analysis application.


Knowledge Engineering: Principles and Methods
Knowledge-based engineering for SMEs — a methodology
Knowledge Modeling In Design - The MOKA Framework
The MOKA framework for design knowledge modeling is described, which includes the usage of goals as essential modeling element connecting domain and problem solving knowledge and the explicit introduction of a strategic reasoning layer and its relation to domain and Problem solving knowledge.
Knowledge Elicitation: Principles, Techniques and Applications
This book sets out to present a coherent set of perspectives on knowledge elicitation, with the particular object of demonstrating the contribution which can be made by psychologists, linguists and
Use of Models in the Interpretation of Verbal Data
The experience of building expert systems for a decade has revealed a number of problems and bottlenecks at each stage of the life cycle, and it appears that ad hoc or post hoc solutions for problems in early stages can create new and even bigger problems at later stages.
Design engineering - a need to rethink the solution using knowledge based engineering
Cognitive map: KBDSS integration in transportation planning
An integrated cognitive map-knowledge based decision support model is used to help the transportation planners in their selection of the most suitable alternative for a water crossing infrastructure and the validity of the results is discussed.
A translation approach to portable ontology specifications
This paper describes a mechanism for defining ontologies that are portable over representation systems, basing Ontolingua itself on an ontology of domain-independent, representational idioms.
Knowledge based engineering for SMEs
As prices for computers and software fall, more companies are able to use them to make their business more efficient. However, a lot of companies do not use the full potential of their software ...
