Definition CommonKADS. Description.

CommonKADS provides an integrated and comprehensive methodology for identifying valuable knowledge, capturing and modeling that knowledge, and incorporating it into knowledge-intensive information systems. CommonKADS is a methodology encompassing knowledge management and knowledge engineering.

It provides an approach to identifying valuable knowledge, capturing such knowledge, modeling it formally (in a form suitable for computers) and developing knowledge intensive systems, as well as softer change aspects of systems implementation. The CommonKADS knowledge model extends the traditional object /data model by providing a richer set of constructs with which to represent knowledge (not just data), allowing contextual aspects of a situation to be included.
 

Origin of CommonKADS. History

The method was developed and proved by a consortium of universities and companies funded by the EC's ESPRIT program. It builds on, and integrates, organizational analysis techniques, psychology for knowledge capture, object modeling and the waterfall/ prototyping lifecycles.

Strengths of CommonKADS. Benefits

  • Enables the development of applications beyond the capabilities of conventional object/data oriented IT.
  • Integrates owner, user and developer views of a system, representing data and information in context.
  • Provides a robust, comprehensive and exhaustive knowledge elicitation and capture with minimum expert involvement;

Limitations of CommonKADS. Disadvantages

The upfront knowledge capture effort needed in CommonKADS projects sometimes tests the patience of system sponsors until they see the results.


Assumptions of CommonKADS. Conditions

CommonKADS is particularly effective / most cost effective when the situation is complex, such as where product and business process are inter-related or where user expertise is an important part of an effective information system.
