    Action line:
    • IST 2.1.2 Knowledge management for eCommerce and eWork.

    Duration: 7/2001-6/2003.

    Goals of e-COGNOS:

    1. Analyse the specificity of knowledge management activities of European construction companies, as well as the impact of organisational, contractual and legal aspects
    2. Understand the semantics within and across heterogeneous construction documents as well as their complex interdependencies leading onto the developpement of an ontology and model-based adaptive mechanisms that can organise documents according to their contents and interdependencies
    3. Specify a web-based infrastructure, including Internet-based services (e-COGNOS API) allowing to create, capture, index, retrieve, disseminate knowledge. It will enable user profiling and encourage personnalised information discovery.
    4. Implement the proposal infrastructure.

    Key issues:

    • Knowledge management in the construction domain. Information semantic analysis.
    • Documents interdependencies and consistency accross projects and between enterprises.

    Role of VTT:

    • VTT acts in e-COGNOS project as a subcontractor of YIT.
