    Abstract

    Today large engineering projects, such as plant design projects, are implemented using concurrent design methodologies. Knowledge sharing within a project organisation is a key element for successful project execution. What we need is a common language to represent knowledge so that it can be shared between designers using different software and performing different design tasks. In many cases we make important project decisions based on incomplete information. Part of the knowledge management in concurrent design projects is to manage not only knowledge that exists, but also to be aware of those decisions, which were based on missing or incomplete information. Today knowledge of the rationale behind the design decisions is mostly not managed adequately. It seems to us that there are methodologies that help sharing this kind of information, but practical implementations require more specific definitions and tools.
