Abstract

The K- & V-Matrix is a description language for configuration knowledge. Its focus is on small and medium sized enterprises. While easy-to-use, it allows the user to describe a significant part of this knowledge. However, although the K- & V-Matrix is a good approach, not all configuration knowledge can be managed with it. Especially when it comes to unstructured configuration knowledge, the K- & V-Matrix is not applicable. To solve this problem, an easy but effective way to describe unstructured configuration knowledge and integrate it with the K- & V-Matrix is needed. A solution to this problem, its functionalities, its integration with the K- & V-Matrix as well as the knowledge acquisition process related to it will be discussed.
