Hi Denise, Nicolas, Max & Conor,    (01)

Just picked this up (Nancy J. Massey

couple of hours ago) ...    (02)

NASA’s new mission: Manage institutional knowledge    (05)

Space agency will use collaborative technologies to capture and 
share lessons learned    (06)

...[snip]... NASA’s new knowledge management system will have 
several components, including the Lessons Learned Information 
System, which the agency is testing now. The Web portal provides 
advanced capabilities for searching or browsing 48 NASA 
engineering repositories. It uses semantic search technologies to 
retrieve structured and unstructured data. The system searches 
only accredited data sources, not informal blog entries or notes.    (08)

In addition to the Lessons Learned portal, the knowledge 
management system will have a communities of practice portal with 
instant messaging and search functions, which Robinson said would 
be the system’s greatest benefit. By using communities of 
practice, for example, an engineer could consult with a group of 
experts via an interactive message board. If a scientist needed 
to conduct a test in a thermal vacuum chamber but was unsure how 
to set it up, experienced NASA engineers could offer suggestions 
in real time. The system would record the conversation for future 
reference.    (09)

An expertise locator will complete NEN. By using the locator, a 
scientist could enter a phrase or a string of terms, such as 
“thermal test,” and the system would generate a list of experts 
associated with that term and their contact information.    (010)

To encourage scientists and engineers to use the collaborative 
system, NASA created an agencywide Lessons Learned Steering 
Committee, which has members from each of NASA’s 10 centers. The 
committee members train others to use the system. ... (more)...

Very relevant to what we are exploring, isn't it.    (012)

Nicolas, are you involved, or close to the people who are working 
on this. Can we get some of them to share their insights?    (013)

Thanks & regards.  =ppy
