Abstract

Current books and also computer aided tools for the transfer of product development knowledge are mostly static and do not consider the user specific needs. A modular contents basis allows the composition of different but consistent documents for different users. Thereby the selection of the modules for an appropriate composition is not a trivial task. To solve this, the presented approach contains a unified description of the three fields product development knowledge domain, modular contents and users by means of adaptive topic maps. These are compatible to each other and can be integrated in a superior system. As a consequence, the original information retrieval problem can be solved by matching the different topic maps.

Keywords: knowledge transfer, topic maps, modularization, user specific documents, information retrieval
