KNOWLEDGE REUSE : TOWARDS A DESIGN TOOL
The aim of this study is to provide a methodology adapted to the small enterprises, to formalize and capitalize on knowledge with a view to designing future processes. This methodology will be built around a knowledge based system. The basic input element into the database is the elementary function, expressed in the form of a verb and complement. Both bases of verbs and complements are decomposed into four classes, of more and more precise semantic level. Based on a verb-complement association, the system provides output of all the possible technical solutions.
