Abstract

Knowledge acquisition is becoming an integral part of the manufacturing industries, which rely on domain experts in various phases
of product life cycle including design, analysis, manufacturing, operation and maintenance. It has the potential to enable knowledge
reuse, however, poorly managed knowledge can cause information loss and inefficiency. If technical documentation is managed
well in the manufacturing industries, intended piece of knowledge can easily be located, used and reused for purpose and as a result,
the corresponding industry can be benefited. Some examples of technical documentation are design specification, operating manual
and maintenance manual. Model-based Documentation (MBD) is a documentation approach that uses model to provide structure to
the data of the documents. MBD can be thought of as a way to better organize knowledge thereby knowledge identification and
retrieval become easier, faster and efficient. In this paper, we propose MBD and its extension as a potential solution to overcome the
issues involved in the typical technical documentation approaches.
