Knowledge Integration in Collaborative New Product Development of Large Commercial Aircraft of China

Li Zhengfeng
Abstract—The aim of this paper was to explore the acquisition, integration and use of new knowledge from multiple sources to promote R&D process of large commercial aircraft of China. Based on interviews of actors participated R&D of aircraft, it constructed a knowledge portal centered with knowledge repository of C919 program. The knowledge portal was analyzed in multiple subsystems comprised of layered structures. Each subsystem had a multi-layered knowledge integration architecture to dynamically integrate diverse knowledge within the Co-NPD network. Three types of interfaces and relative collaborative mechanisms across multi-levels were found in collaboration process. These collaborative mechanisms created norms to provide assurance that “proprietary knowledge” can be effectively protected while at the same time encourage valuable knowledge to be freely shared and utilized.

Index Terms—Collaborative new product development, knowledge integration, network, collaborative mechanisms.
