||The concept of knowledge management (KM) is now familiar to the construction industry, and various attempts are being made to develop tools and techniques for the effective management of knowledge in the industry. This paper addresses the ‘live’ capture of construction project knowledge, which is as yet, an elusive goal in KM efforts. It describes an approach to achieve this using a combination of techniques and tools including learning histories, collaborative learning, project extranets and workflow management. This proposed methodology also specifies the incorporation of a ‘project knowledge file’ which will form the basis of knowledge capture during the execution of a project, an integrated workflow system and a project knowledge manager. The intention is to ensure the currency and relevance of the knowledge captured, prevent the ‘re-invention of the wheel’, and facilitate innovation, increased agility, better teamwork and supply chain integration, and improved project performance.
