Abstract

This article presents a new knowledge management paradigm and its support framework realized by multiple intelligent agents, which is suitable to the dynamic feature of knowledge flow in the cooperative problem solving process of the Communities of Practice about the collaborative task. The new paradigm provides a sharing knowledge space called Knowledge Workshop to realize the knowledge management mechanism. Knowledge Workshop can be used to support the cooperative work, accumulate the new experiences, acquire the relevant knowledge, and organize these knowledge and experiences to facilitate the knowledge sharing and flowing for the Communities of Practice about a collaborative task, in order to benefit from knowledge assets mostly. The article also analyzes the dynamic feature of knowledge flow of the Communities of Practice about a collaborative task, and presents the knowledge flowing process model in a cycle of the collaborative task.
