Abstract

Every five years, the French Ministry of Industry launches a study about the key technologies for the next five years. Knowledge capitalization was one of the mentioned technologies in 2000. This paper starts with the description of some problems forecasted at that time and the actual situation since. In this context, a definition for knowledge management is presented, and some related concepts are proposed.

Finally, it is shown how the expert system technology associated with a cooperative design modeler allows the implementation of the knowledge management concepts.
