This thesis proposes the application of a knowledge maturity concept at the gates to raise the decision makers’ awareness of knowledge assets.
The objective of this paper is to discuss agent-based modelling and simulation as decision support in functional product development, and to show example of the approach.
Gated Maturity Assessment is an example where stage-gate decisions are supported with knowledge maturity awareness capabilities.
