Development of a knowledge warehouse for grinding

By Asmaa Alabed and Xun Chen


Successful of grinding in practice is highly depending on the level of expertise of the machinist and engineer. Knowledge Management might offer a strategy to keep the valuable knowledge. The main objective of Knowledge Management (KM) is to manage knowledge process, the knowledge itself could not be managed, what can be managed is the knowledge gathering, storing and organizing, retrieving, and sharing. The organization should have an effective and efficient information system to facilitate knowledge management process. This paper presents the current development of a Grinding Knowledge Warehouse (GKW) which facilitates and supports knowledge management process for grinding technology and provides a guidance to select the required grinding conditions or parameters for a given grinding operation taking account of the lessons learned from previous cases
