i²Kn is based on an innovative methodology, modelling logical thinking and registering issues/solutions couples.
i²Kn classifies the experts by contributions and not by competencies. It establishes links between technical actors (experts and users), know-how and solutions (presented in a functional and composite way). This singular architecture satisfies industrials’ needs of innovation and capitalization of logical thinking.
For each company i²Kn is composed of two scientific community databases.
- An internal database (private access to the company’s actors) which capitalizes the specialists’ logical thinking which allow to bring solutions. By interviewing your teams, we establish a mind-map of these pieces of thinking; we register the experience’s paths in a wiki-type « wiki » and very innovative computer tool which will “give you access « to logical thinking via logical thinking » and to elaborate a directory of your company actors by know-how;
- A scientific database shared with contractors, suppliers and research laboratories. This scientific database is filled-in with the ten-years experience of MeetSYS and is structured like a dictionary of technical elementary functions; it summarizes all the fundamental physics’ functions; it allows external specialists and technology’s suppliers to identify themselves as experts in the functions for which they have developed expertise; consequently, you access a network of specialists who handle knowledge and pieces of technology and who can bring you the innovation you are searching for.
