Abstract:

Efficient technology transfer from the basic research community to the engineering development community is essential for maintaining technological competitiveness. However, the research and the design communities have different objectives, and they also have different perspectives on relevant technical knowledge. In this work, the communication issues resulting from the differing perspectives of these two communities are addressed with a hypertext knowledge presentation system for technology transfer. The objective of this work is to relate research results to a relevant engineering framework, and to use this framework to present both the research and the design communities with information to facilitate research transition. This knowledge presentation system can be used by the engineering development community to access research knowledge that is relevant to a specific design topic and that has the potential for transition. In addition, this system documents the current status of design technology, which can assist program managers in directing research efforts towards those areas that will lead to improved analysis techniques or increased physical understanding at the design level.
