Knowledge-oriented Production Process Model (KPPM)

PREFACE

Every production process can be decomposed in sub-process. Therefore processes and sub-processes can be modeled according to a pseudo-fractal approach. Each model unit can be described by using 18 different concept grouped in five different classes: core, information and data, criteria, needs, filters. The latter four classes are called side concepts. Side concepts are strictly related to knowledge management. They can be the foundation for mapping knowledge related to the process unit. This model applies to any production process (manufacturing, software development, engineering, intellectual).
