Capturing Knowledge through Problem Oriented Engineering

Hall, Jon G. and Rapanotti, Lucia (2008). Capturing Knowledge through Problem Oriented Engineering. Technical Report 2008/03; Department of Computing, The Open University.



Problem Oriented Engineering (POE) is a formal system for engineering design. In previous work, we have successfully applied POE within the context of software engineering. This paper illustrates the application of POE beyond software to capturing knowledge in a socio-technical context. The problem we are considering is that of publishing. Through a POE analysis we capture the essential elements of the problem and show how scientific journals provide a tried and tested solution to this problem, exposing the rationale behind their success.
