Intellectual asset management of "knowledge engineering" knowledge engineering is an effective way of technological innovation. Enterprises should realize the management of all kinds of enterprise intellectual assets; We should let organized knowledge flow smoothly inside and outside the enterprise, and create value for the enterprise in the process of flow; We should take enterprise informatization as the basic environment, computer aided innovation (CAI) as the necessary tool, and knowledge integration as the new development direction of enterprise informatization

the sum of enterprise knowledge - intellectual assets

the results of the National Natural Science Foundation's "Eighth Five Year Plan" major project "technological innovation research" undertaken by the development research center of the State Council show that the R & D achievements and practical experience of enterprises exist in the knowledge base in the form of knowledge. The richer the accumulation of enterprises, the richer the knowledge base, and the stronger the technological innovation ability of enterprises. Therefore, the author's view is that innovation must be based on knowledge, especially on organized knowledge

in the real world, knowledge and information are extremely rich, but for enterprises, what is really scarce is the ability to use them meaningfully. The research shows that the key to improving the technological innovation ability and product independent research and development ability of enterprises is to vigorously improve the acquisition, processing, sharing and application ability of information and knowledge, that is, to establish a knowledge engineering system

idc (International Data Corporation) research report shows that 90% of the so-called "innovative work" done by most R & D personnel is repetitive work, because these knowledge already exists (inside or outside the organization). Another research report shows that knowledge workers spend one third of their time looking for information that they have never found, especially the frequent circulation of goods today

as mentioned above, the process from data to information and then to knowledge is a process of continuous reuse and refinement - data is promoted to information in continuous use, information is transformed into knowledge in repeated application, and the sum of enterprise knowledge is further accumulated as enterprise intellectual assets

in the process of enterprise informatization, in terms of the general application status of Chinese enterprises, our enterprise informatization has developed from data integration represented by CAX 20 years ago to information integration represented by PDM and ERP 10 years ago. Further, we have developed to knowledge integration represented by CAI in recent years. Knowledge integration inevitably calls for a knowledge integration platform facing the engineering field to realize the effective accumulation of enterprise intellectual assets

from the perspective of globalization, foreign well-known enterprises and groups have achieved joint or reorganization. In addition to obtaining complementary products and markets, they have achieved resource sharing and platform sharing in R & D. The globalization of R & D links has optimized and reorganized the R & D advantages originally scattered in various enterprises, while reducing R & D costs. Therefore, in the near future, the production, processing, sharing and application capabilities of information and knowledge at the industrial or enterprise (including virtual enterprises) level will be significantly improved. Accumulating enterprise intellectual assets and technological innovation based on knowledge are the only way for the future of enterprise informatization

the complete category of enterprise intellectual assets

knowledge, especially the knowledge that can be used as enterprise intellectual assets, plays an extremely important role in enterprise R & D. Enterprise intellectual assets include both internal and external parts of the enterprise, as well as materialized knowledge (specifications, tables, drawings, modeling, assembly, test results, OA, CAX documents, etc.) and non materialized knowledge (experience, creativity, principles, methods, rules, know how, etc.)

the result of manufacturing enterprise informatization is the introduction of a large number of CAx and OA software, and the generation of a large number of data files expressing product knowledge, which are valuable enterprise (internal) intellectual assets. In the past few years, many enterprises have realized the need to manage their internal intellectual assets and materialized knowledge, and have introduced PDM, KM and other product data/knowledge management systems. Table 1 complete enterprise intellectual assets category at the time of collision

enterprise external intellectual assets

-- patent database, innovation knowledge base, think tank, international literature enterprise internal intellectual assets

-- CAX documents, OA documents, internal databases and other non materialized knowledge

-- experience, creativity, know-how, skills and other materialized knowledge

-- documents, drawings, images, CDs, models, etc.

however, A very serious problem is still ignored by people for a long time: the management of non materialized knowledge, such as design experience, creativity, principles, methods, rules, know-how and other non materialized knowledge, is the basis of product concept construction, a very valuable product innovation knowledge, and an important part of enterprise intellectual assets. However, such knowledge is losing at an alarming rate in millions of Chinese manufacturing enterprises every day. Because the existing and traditional CAX, PDM and KM software are not platforms for managing such innovative knowledge. Such innovative knowledge has always existed in the way of human brain biological memory. It is a "natural" phenomenon that knowledge moves with people. With the "natural" reasons such as employees' retirement, going abroad, transfer, job hopping, accidents and so on, a large number of enterprise intellectual assets are "naturally" lost in vain. Such a situation has seriously affected the effect of enterprise technological innovation

in addition to ignoring the management of their own enterprise intellectual assets, another common problem of enterprises is that they do not learn enough from external intellectual assets. This will make us unable to understand and know what others (other enterprises, other industries, other countries) have done and are doing. Therefore, we cannot stand at a relatively high starting point for technological innovation. It is inevitable to repeat the old path of others, and even cause "innovation" to occur frequently. Therefore, the introduction of innovative knowledge base refined from millions of international patent knowledge is of great help for us to understand the development and trend of international advanced manufacturing technology, understand and learn from others' innovative methods, and for the technological innovation of our manufacturing industry

enterprise intellectual asset management

if the enterprise can achieve: ⑴ turn individual knowledge into public, organized and sharable knowledge, and take these knowledge and product knowledge accumulated for many years as the enterprise's intellectual capital, then the shaft sleeve should be taken down and put into a knowledge base; ⑵ integrate and connect the internal and external intellectual assets of the enterprise; ⑶ promote these intellectual assets to the height of strategic wealth, treat them and make full use of them, so that every member of the technological innovation team can easily select, visit, make full use of them and actively participate in the collection, induction and summary. It can be expected that the intellectual assets of the enterprise will continue to accumulate. These intellectual assets will continue to create value for the enterprise while being transformed into physical assets. Breakthrough R & D progress and "killer" product innovation can be significantly increased. In this process, it is obvious that knowledge (enterprise intellectual assets) that has been effectively organized plays a decisive role

as shown in Figure 2, in the knowledge engineering mode shown in the figure, the reuse and flow of knowledge are reciprocating in the product life cycle. Advancing knowledge from upstream to downstream, making knowledge produce value for enterprises, and turning intellectual assets into deliverable physical assets, realizing the purpose of innovation; At the same time, intellectual assets are accumulated in the whole life cycle of the product, and they are returned to the upstream for proper management, so as to prepare for the next round of innovation. The realization process of knowledge engineering is actually a benign and cyclical process. The more times this process circulates, the more knowledge precipitates and accumulates. Obviously, such a knowledge engineering model is an important strategy and long-term plan for the sustainable development of enterprises. We call this knowledge engineering model the "ecosystem" of innovation

in fact, the generation of enterprise intellectual assets runs through the whole R & D process of the enterprise and exists in the whole life cycle of products - from the generation of conceptual schemes to the various stages of product design, manufacturing, flight test, mass production, use, maintenance, etc., we will produce very valuable experience and knowledge, which need to be explored, collected and sorted out. However, judging from the current situation of China's manufacturing industry, this work has been done very limited. The reasons are complex and multifaceted, such as: limited understanding of enterprise intellectual assets; Lack of understanding and insufficient attention to the innovation mechanism; Lack of effective means of knowledge mining; Lack of effective means of knowledge expression and organization; More importantly, there is a lack of appropriate intellectual asset management platform

cai (Computer Aided Innovation) makes it possible to realize the expensive asset management of the former in the whole range of intelligence. As a management platform of enterprise intellectual assets, CAI can not only manage the intellectual assets inside the enterprise and draw on the intellectual assets outside the enterprise, but also manage the materialized knowledge and non materialized knowledge, realizing the full scope management of enterprise intellectual assets. We have made knowledge reserves for innovation. (end)
