Knowledge Discovery in Collaborative Design Projects

Conference paper
Part of the IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology book series (IFIPAICT, volume 438)


Design projects have evolved to be collaborative, concurrent and multi-disciplinary. Due to these changes, knowledge management for design projects faces new challenges, in order to represent all the elements in a collaborative design project, it is necessary to consider not only decision-making process, but also its context and interaction with other elements.
