Knowledge Maturity as a Means to Support Decision Making During Product-Service Systems Development Projects in the Aerospace Sector

Johansson, Christian; Hicks, Ben; Larsson, Andreas LU and Bertoni, Marco (2011) In Project Management Journal 42(2). p.32-50
Abstract
Streamlining new product development forces companies to make decisions on preliminary information. This article considers this challenge within the context of project management in the aerospace sector and, in particular, for the development of product-service systems. The concept of knowledge maturity is explored as a means to provide practical decision support, which increases decision makers’ awareness of the knowledge base and supports cross-boundary discussions on the perceived maturity of available knowledge, thereby identifying and mitigating limitations. Requirements are elicited from previous research on knowledge maturity in the aerospace industry, and a knowledge maturity model is developed through five industry-based
