Gerhard Fleischanderl

Knowledge management is widely discussed, but scarcely supported with tools and information systems. Configurators capture knowledge from product design, marketing and sales.

Ease of maintenance of a configurator’s knowledge base corresponds to its usefulness for knowledge management.
