2018 Knowledge Aware Conference Presentations
The Big Picture of Knowledge Aware
Jeff Moffa and Steve Boisvert shared an overview of the Knowledge Aware approach. From the presentation, listeners will be able to:
- Gain a basic understanding of what the Knowledge Aware approach is
- Understand the benefits of the Knowledge Aware approach
- Learn about the unique use cases of how the Knowledge Aware approach is used
- Learn about the ten tenets of the Knowledge Aware approach
Interactive Exercise on Becoming Knowledge Aware
The interactive exercise will create an environment where four groups work individually to solve complex problems. As each problem is solved, a component to a greater ‘enterprise’ challenge will be unlocked. Ultimately, through the knowledge aware approach, the groups will collectively resolve the high level challenge.
Introduction to the International Knowledge Aware Association (IKAA)
The International Knowledge Aware Association (IKAA) educates and provides insight on how to best implement and develop the Knowledge Aware approach within an organization. From now until December 31, 2018, the IKAA is offering complimentary memberships.
Introducing Auros to manage Morse (BW) Product development process and technical Knowledge globally
This session explores the implementation in Morse, a Business Unit of BW, of Auros as the main software support to manage globally the Product Development Process and technical knowledge. Topics include why we undertook this improvement project, the scope of the project, the reasons that lead us to Auros, the scope and set up of the project, the strategy of development and implementation, challenges that we encountered and early wins, success factors and unintended effects, what we are using and not using in the Auros software and next steps.
Knowledge Provisioning to Improve First Time Quality in Ship Design
Ship owners continue to face the challenges of escalating costs associated with designing, building, operating, and maintaining government and commercial assets over their full life cycle. The National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) has provided funding to advance knowledge management and knowledge aware engineering in the shipbuilding industry. This presentation will give an overview of these current and past NSRP projects.
Cool K-PAC Competition
2018 Knowledge Aware Conference – Three of the top K-PAC competitors will be sharing their favorite Knowledge Packets in front of a live crowd. The crowd will take a vote on who has the 'Best K-PAC.' The winner will take home the Cool K-PAC Competition trophy.
Contestants include: General Motors, BorgWarner (winner), and MIT Lincoln Laboratory
A Knowledge Aware Narrative: Walking the Walk
A story of discovering Knowledge Aware and it’s propensity for organic growth regardless of scale or industry. This discussion will focus on atypical applications of the ‘Knowledge Aware’ technique and their realized impact on non-engineering business functions. Additionally, we’ll explore planned expansion at Auros and the anticipated advancements to come.
Auros Application Example – KOHLER Showering and Bathing New Product Integration
Too often critical technical information resides in the heads of experienced Associates. When this information is needed in a new product development/design process, one must know who to contact, involve them at the right time, and hope they don’t leave the company. Auros is a software that captures technical knowledge in the form of a requirement, and automatically applies the knowledge at the right time in the process, and then measures and tracks actual performance against the requirement. It also enables real time updating for lessons learned, and manages issues as they are raised real-time. Past performance is then easily searchable by individual requirements, eliminating the project or document based research projects. This session will walk though how we applied Auros to our new product integration process at Kohler.
