Identifying open problems in an engineering domain is a first step towards making new contributions. To identify problems one often examines existing solutions to recognize opportunities for advances. As the knowledge in a domain grows and multiplies, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of advances made, especially in relation to evolving needs. Drawing from goal-oriented requirements engineering, the authors propose a specialized use of concept maps to map out contributions to problem-solving knowledge in an engineering domain.
