GENERIC STRUCTURE OF KNOWLEDGE WITHIN THE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
The resource knowledge becomes more and more important in terms of a factor of production. The intention of this paper is to develop a preferable, general structure of knowledge within the product development process to make it available to several fields of application. Theoretical results have been optimised due to first empirical studies in an academic environment. The developed structuring model represents an approach that subdivides relevant knowledge types into two categories and shows their interconnectedness, relations and significance within the product development process.
