Abstract

Knowledge generated during the design process frequently goes uncaptured, and when it is captured, it is usually poorly organized and buried in obscure documents. Effective capture of both semantic knowledge and episodic knowledge can have many benefits for both student and professional design teams. In this paper, we describe DesignWebs, which are dynamic, navigable networks of the documents and conversations created during the design process.

Keywords: Design knowledge, organizational memory
