KEE Guidelines

Knowledge Enabled Engineering Guidelines

Published: 11 January 2008

Good practices for collaborative working and decision-making from the VIVACE project.

Why?
We all need guidance in our lives! Knowledge Enabled Engineering is not as simple as purchasing a system, or following a process, there are nuances and differences in organisations that must be taken into account.

It is important to understand the nature of collaborative working and decision-making within a supply chain environment, team dynamics, and why collaboration is often difficult to achieve by technology alone. To enable organisations to consider these aspects and embed good working practices, a set of guidelines have been produced.

How?
The KEE Guidelines are good practice aids, allowing adaptation of processes, behaviours and the approach or ganisations take to better facilitate Knowledge Enabled Engineering. The guidelines focus on four aspects:

  • How to collaborate and the role of collaborative knowledge sharing platforms
  • How to learn lessons across the supply chain boundaries
  • How to assess, review and improve supply chain relationships to support effective working
  • How to assess the maturity of information through a gated process

Key Benefits

  • Improved knowledge sharing across the extended enterprise, projects, and teams
  • To support collaborative teams within an extended enterprise through the life of a project
  • To use technology more effectively to support knowledge sharing and collaboration
  • Mitigate knowledge loss by documenting key experience and background knowledge
  • To mitigate the risks of working in a dispersed way within multi-disciplinary, multi-culture, multilanguage, multi-organisation working groups
  • Higher quality processes due to a maturity based gated process

The following four guidelines are available with documentation on this page:

  • Lesson Learnt (Methodology, TRL 5)
  • Knowledge Sharing Guideline (Guideline, TRL 5)
  • Relationship Evaluation Tool (Methodology, TRL 5)
  • Gated Maturity Process (Methodology, TRL 5)
