Contextualized Knowledge Management
“Conventional knowledge management only covers knowledge classification, summary and retrieval, and developers are counted on to look up documents they need in knowledge base. Unfortunately, this method is hard to work. Unlike conventional knowledge management, Contextualized knowledge management is an intelligent knowledge management system. It “knows” which developer will benefit from which existing knowledge, and can bring appropriate knowledge to appropriate developers at appropriate time.
Structural product R&D flows form project plan template base, and at the same time, relevant knowledge is correlated with tasks in plan so that developers will obtain task related knowledge links while receiving tasks.
Retrospective analysis of historical issues forms check elements of review so that subsequent review can use them repeatedly to avoid making the same mistakes.
Summary and sorting of risks encountered in previous projects form unified risk base; when there is a new project, project risks can be identified in a fast and all-round way based on historical risk base.
Automatic summary of objective data such as staged period, staged workload and staged plan deviation by project type provides direct guides for preparing subsequent project plan of the same type.
In the business flow, operation precautions can be flexibly defined for each field to avoid repeated mistake made by operators.
Detailed records of historical actual workload and period of each task provides direct guides for estimation of workload and period of subsequent similar tasks.
“Contextualized knowledge management allows work practices to be raised to a higher efficiency level, and turns developers’ passive reference manual into more useful active knowledge. These work practices are no more included in the manual, but clung to specific project activities relating to them in electronic edition. The developers of the activities can see these practices when they need.”
Directly obtain the best R&D knowledge base in the industry
More than twenty of industry's best business electronic processes (such as product development, technology development, requirement management, bug management, document management, assessment management, issue management, risk management, change management, equipment management, meeting management, material management, supplier management, baseline management, product management, product portfolio management and etc.), support customizing configuration and definition of new workflow.
Project plan templates allow to achieve product R&D flow, and directly correlate with project management
With project plan template function, structural product R&D flows are converted to corresponding project plan templates, and a plan of a specific project can be created based on plan template. The project manager just needs to modify it slightly to form a feasible project plan, reduce project plan difficulty and enhance feasibility of project plan at the same time.
Provide project risk base, project review element base and project KPI base to fully promote sharing of project knowledge
Project risk base allows to efficiently and completely identify the risks of a project; project review element base allows to share historical failure experiences, avoid subjective review and improve project delivery quality; project KPI base provides a direction for project operation so that project objectives are consistent with the objectives of the Company and product line.
