WEB-BASED KNOWLEDGE NUGGETS FOR ARCHITECTURE KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT

Meira Levy, Irit Hadar, Ethan Hadar

Abstract

This paper presents in-process knowledge management for technical information, managing architecture knowledge nuggets, and implemented as embedded toolbar and Web repositories façade. The façade encompasses a plug-in and approach for documenting, reviewing and communicating knowledge nuggets. The nuggets are concise representations of architecture knowledge addressing best practices, design patterns, review comments and any additional architecture concerns. The knowledge activities are embedded during the lifecycle of software product development, namely, in-process, and may foster reuse of architecture artifacts. The façade is a Web accessed system to existing and new organizational knowledge management systems, and can serve as an access point from within any existing information system (e.g., service desks). Utilizing the Web based knowledge façade reduces the time-to-value in making architecture decisions while increasing the quality of the resulted artifacts. In addition, the facade provides on-the-fly access to relevant information and best practices related to architectural design decisions during routine R&D and deployment activities.
