Abstract

Managing knowledge in the construction field is an ongoing research topic. Although many methods have been proposed for managing knowledge in the construction field, the following issues remain unclear: what knowledge resources are, what the optimal knowledge representation is, and what knowledge sharing means. In this paper, a novel approach for managing knowledge in the construction field is proposed. Our contributions in this paper include the definition of new knowledge resources by acquiring and representing immature knowledge, and acquiring and representing external knowledge (i.e., knowledge not related to the company or the engineer himself). Our proposed approach has been validated through an online system, which is currently used by one of the largest construction companies in Libya.
