In this paper, we propose a frame-work to represent the Virtual Engineering Objects (VEO) utilizing Set of Knowledge Experience Structure (SOEKS) and Decisional DNA. A VEO will enable the discovery of new knowledge in a manufacturing unit and the generation of new rules that drive reasoning. The proposed VEO framework will not only be knowledge based representation but it will also have its associated experience embedded within it. This concept will evolve and discover implicit knowledge in industrial plant, which can be beneficial for the engineers and practitioners. A VEO will be a living representation of an object; capable of adding, storing, improving and sharing knowledge through experience, similar to an expert of that area.
