SimISpace2: A Simulation Platform for Exploring Strategic Knowledge Management Processes

  • Chapter

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (TCCI,volume 7776)

Abstract

SimISpace2 is an agent-based simulation environment designed to simulate strategic knowledge management processes, in particular knowledge flows and knowledge-based agent interactions. It serves as a general knowledge management engine that, through a user-friendly graphical interface, can be adapted to a wide range of knowledge-related applications. Its purpose is to improve our understanding of how knowledge is generated, diffused, internalized and managed by individuals and organizations, under both collaborative and competitive learning conditions.

Keywords
