Abstract

In the research field of knowledge-based product development, a huge number of knowledge management solutions is available and enjoys high attention in the entrepreneurial environment. In contrast to whole knowledge-intensive business processes, which are partially modelled by means of a modelling language, the importance of a modelled knowledge management solution is not considered yet. A modelled knowledge management solution by means of the Knowledge Modeling and Description Language (KMDL) offers high potential for supporting the product development process. This paper describes an approach for developing product-development-process-specific knowledge management solution models by using KMDL. As a frame of reference, the generic procedure model in KMDL projects, which KMDL provides, has been adapted and optimised. The derived approach is described with several process steps. Finally, the presented approach is critically discussed and the paper ends with a brief conclusion as well as an outlook for subsequent research activities.
