Abstract: Dealing with historical knowledge is a complex task as it involves specific approaches modelling and know-how. Heritage objects are historical witnesses with life cycles that are difficult to clearly identify. In this paper, we discuss the possibilities of managing such a heterogeneous content through a PLM system that concentrates on historical knowledge and museums. Based on previous research in the field of advanced industrial archaeology, we demonstrate our process through an industrial research and development project with a history museum.

Keywords: historical knowledge management; product lifecycle management; PLM; museology; cultural heritage; information systems; reverse engineering; history museums; industrial archaeology.
