Edwards, J.S., Alifantis, A., Hurrion, R.D., Ladbrook, J., Robinson, S. and Waller, T. (2002). Knowledge elicitation supported by simulation.

The work reported in this paper is part of a project simulating maintenance operations in an automotive engine production facility. The decisions made by the people in charge of these operations form a crucial element of this simulation. Eliciting this knowledge is problematic. One approach is to use the simulation model as part of the knowledge elicitation process. This paper reports on the experience so far with using a simulation model to support knowledge management in this way. Issues are discussed regarding the data available, the use of the model, and the elicitation process itself.
