Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.
A production process can be provided with a knowledge-oriented model that describes for each process unit which knowledge processes are involved as well as which knowledge is created, acquired, captured, shared and used.

Knowledge-oriented Production Process Model (KPPM)
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).
UNIT A generic term to indicate the modeled stage, phase, the step.
PROCESS The process running inside the unit
