Abstract
KSS recognizes the complexity involved in the ship lifecycle. A significant step in improving this process is to convert implicit knowledge into explicit knowledge as knowledge bases that capture, organize, manage, store, and find knowledge and information so they can be reused and improved throughout the lifecycle. Modeling this knowledge in knowledge bases gives the Navy and shipbuilders a significant new capability to model and simulate projects, systems, and processes to plan, coordinate, model and track all aspects of ship modernization. KSS has identified a feasible solution that can be incrementally implemented to capture the knowledge and experience of an aging and retiring workforce, leveraging three important knowledge resources; the Internet, the desktop/private server networks, and personal knowledge bases.
