Technical Memory Management System for Shipyards

PROJECT INFORMATION OBJECTIVE
Prime/Lead: Bollinger

Team Members: NASSCO, Emergent
Systems Corp.

Duration: 12 Months
(12/1/2012 – 11/30/2013)
To evaluate the business impact of the
formal assessment capability within the
E2ks toolset for two distinct shipyard
engineering environments – Bollinger and
NASSCO
DELIVERABLES/BENEFITS/ROI FINANCIAL

E2ks Terminology

• Community of Practice (CoP)
– The 'Community of Practice', or CoP, is
the fundamental organizational' unit
inside E2ks. E2ks uses the CoP to
organize, configure and assign ownership
of knowledge assets.
• K-PAC – Knowledge Packet
– The K-PAC is the fundamental ‘unit’ of
knowledge in E2ks. K-PACs are structured
encapsulations of technical knowledge,
used to capture, share and reuse
technical know-how.
• Assessment Control (AC)
– Assessment Controls are collections of K-
PACs used to evaluate/assess a
design/process/workflow.
