  • A Lean Framework For Reusing Knowledge Introducing Engineering Checksheets   Order a copy of this article
    by Dag Bergsjö, Amer Catic, Daniel Stenholm 
    Abstract: In this study, we have brought several knowledge management theories and practices together and have investigated the valuable aspects in each one of them. Throughout our research, we have enabled knowledge reuse to be a guiding principle and have attempted to formulate an improved method for documenting knowledge. The focus has been to create actionable and reusable knowledge presented at the right time, to the right audience in a digitally condensed format that may hopefully will lead to improved decision-making, thereby potentially driving innovation and effectively reducing overall product realization lead-time. We have explored the effect of the Engineering Checksheet concept in two separate case studies where it was implemented in a real-life setting. The concept showed positive results as a knowledge carrier both for reuse by experienced and novice users.
    Keywords: Organizational learning; knowledge management practice; knowledge sharing; explicit knowledge; decision support; case studies; engineering checksheet.
