In recent years, new disciplines have developed with the emergence of so-called information technologies. Among these new fields is Knowledge Management (KM), which is based on the sharing of knowledge in order to ensure its sustainability and dissemination within the company. This knowledge can concern all company departments: production, human resources, research and development, design, industrialization, IT, after-sales service, sales, purchasing, quality, accounting, finance, etc.
However, in addition to its collaborative aspect, a knowledge management system must also be easy to handle, because although the effectiveness of these tools in reinforcing the results of the organizations that use them is no longer in doubt, the problems of Knowledge Management persist in many R&D departments and design offices.
This is why a search tool that takes into account several criteria is important so as not to create a gap in the company’s technical heritage. TEEXMA® offers four search modules, based on differents logic, in order to take into account the needs of each search:
In addition to the text search tool, TEEXMA® offers a document search engine. Wherever the documents are published and hosted, the user can find the objects carrying these documents in the textual search results, regardless of their format (Word, PDF, Notepad, etc.)
In order to apprehend the user logic and to assist more faithfully in the research carried out, it is possible to design choice guides. Concretely, the choice guide appears in the form of an intelligent questionnaire that adapts to the answers provided by the user. In this way, depending on the answers given by the user to the questions, the research will be carried out. These selection guides are easily set up by an administrator and are ideal for more casual users of the TEEXMA® tool who will simply be guided through the process to find the information they are looking for.
The multi-criteria selection module is TEEXMA®‘s most advanced search capability. It allows you to create a complete set of search specifications for any type of feature (date, Boolean, text, numeric, link, etc.) through an interface with no programming required. The results are then proposed in tabular form, classified by the percentage of adequacy thanks to a powerful fuzzy logic algorithm. These results can then be easily compared and, if needed, exported to Excel.
