    Knowledge management for space activities in the digital era


    The digital era is in full force in the aerospace industry. Knowledge Management plays a major role in this context to generate a community of shared and useful information. More advanced technologies give digital workers the opportunity to communicate and collaborate on a regular basis, in addition the proliferation of mobile devices and social media allows content to be more rapidly shared. This environment pushes towards understanding what critical knowledge is, how it can help drive down costs and seeing solutions. Key themes addressed during the session are: managing the sharing of the knowledge to develop new projects, what solutions are in place to work securely across corporate and international boundaries, how is knowledge captured, shared, and used to drive innovation and create value to the organization, collaboration and culture, the financial value of KM to the business, processes and technologies that organisations are using to sustain, energise and invigorate their ability to learn, innovate, and share knowledge. Examples of case studies of particular interest include successful projects and innovations in the application of knowledge management, grounded research in knowledge and risk management, methods that allow data, information or knowledge exchange within or amongst organisations in support of actual programmes, and capturing engineering knowledge and information in computer models.
