    The knowledge-based theory of a firm suggests that knowledge is the only remaining sustainable resource that can provide competitive advantage in dynamic environments. Knowledge is a key resource that must be actively ...
  • EUREEKA: Deepening the Semantic Web by More Efficient Emergent Knowledge Representation and Processing 

    Novacek, Vit (CEUR-WS, 2008)
    One of the major Semantic Web challenges is the knowledge acquisition bottleneck. New content on the web is produced much faster than the respective machine readable annotations, while a scalable knowledge extraction ...
  • Implementation of an AmI system in a Manufacturing SME 

    Gill, Simrn; Cormican, Kathryn (2008)
    SME's are facing greater challenges due to increased labour cost and reduced cycle times. To adapt to these challenges they need systems in place that will enable them to be flexible, effective and efficient. This is the ...
  • Imprecise Empirical Ontology Refinement: Application to Taxonomy Acquisition 

    Novacek, Vit (INSTICC, 2007)
    The significance of uncertainty representation has become obvious in the Semantic Web community recently. This paper presents new results of our research on uncertainty incorporation into ontologies created automatically ...
  • Innovation management for product and process development 

    Cormican, Kathryn; O'Sullivan, David; Browne, Jim; Yu, Ming; Dooley, Lawrence (2000)
    Industry we are told manages change poorly. Surveys indicate that over 50% of change programmes fail to meet objectives. The reasons cited are all too familiar: poor goal definition, poor alignment of actions to goals and ...
  • Knowledge Sharing and Filtering on Semantic Web 2.0 

    Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Gzella, Adam (2007)
    E-learning and other popular services that grow on the fertile soil of the Internet technologies usually fail to reach their full potential. With new, emerging technologies of the second generation Internet there is even ...
  • Managing tacit and explicit knowledge in organisational teams 

    Halonen, Raija (2008)
    In this article we analyse how tacit and explicit knowledge are managed in teams. Tacit knowledge is located in human persons and it can not be described formally as data or any other form while explicit knowledge is public ...
  • Measuring knowledge transfer success by D&M 

    Halonen, Raija (2008)
    DeLone & McLean's success model has been actively used since its first introduction in 1992. In this article the model is extended to describe the success of knowledge sharing in an information system that included a part ...
  • Product manager: A decision support tool for design engineers 

    Cormican, Kathryn; O'Sullivan, David (1999)
    The new product development process is the lifeblood of all manufacturing enterprises. Many tools and techniques have been developed in an attempt to make this process more efficient and effective. However, in spite of ...
  • Semantic Versioning Manager: Integrating SemVersion in Protégé 

    Groza, Tudor; Handschuh, Siegfried (2006)
    Knowledge domains and their semantic representations via ontologies are typically subject to change in practical applications. Additionally, engineering of ontologies often takes place in distributed settings where multiple ...
  • Semantic Wikis for Personal Knowledge Management 

    Oren, Eyal; Breslin, John; Decker, Stefan (Springer, 2006)
    Wikis are becoming popular knowledge management tools. Analysing knowledge management requirements, we observe that wikis do not fully support structured search and knowledge reuse. We show how Semantic wikis address the ...
