Developing a Theoretical Framework for Knowledge Acquisition
Eliciting knowledge is one of the most critical tasks that many organizations may face. Many organizations face problems when experts leave their job. This paper presents a framework for knowledge acquisition which will allow for a consistent method for capturing the knowledge of a particular enterprise, organization or human (domain) expert. This developed framework can be used for almost large organizations with a little adaptation related to job nature of the organizations. The goal of this paper is to present a framework in which a knowledge engineer can use to successfully capture, apply and validate knowledge. This framework can also be used for both types of knowledge (explicit and tacit). Moreover, applying this framework does not require a huge amount of effort or cost.
