  • The Use Of Product Configurators Has For Several Years Provided Many Engineering-Oriented Companies
  • Improved Quality Of Product Specifications
  • Preservation Of Knowledge
  • Use Of Fewer Resources For Specifying Products
  • Optimized Products
  • Less Routine Work
  • Improved Certainty Of Delivery
  • And Less Time Needed For Training New Employees
  • Unfortunately
  • Not All Configuration Projects Are Successful
  • But In Fact Many Fail Or Experience Great Problems During The Course Of The Project
  • An Important Factor For The Success Of A Configuration Project Is The Quality Of The Methods
  • Techniques And Tools Applied When Extracting
  • Representing And Documenting Relevant Domain Knowledge
  • Despite This Fact
  • Research In The Knowledge Acquisition Process Of Configuration Projects Is An Areathat Has Been Much
  • Therefore
  • This Thesis Deals With Some Of The Most Important Aspects Of The Knowledge Acquisition Process In Co
  • Produced During The Course Of The Phd Project
  • The Questions Are Grouped Under Three Topics: Domain Expert Knowledge
  • Knowledge Representation Techniques
  • And Documentation Of Configuration Knowledge
  • The Thesis Takes Its Point Of Departure In Analysing Existing Literature
  • After Which Research Questions Are Defined
  • A Frame Of Reference Established And The Scientific Approach Outlined
