Knowledge representation in collective ideation

Willian Rochadel, Gertrudes A. Dandolini, João Artur de Souza


Open Innovation encourages a strategic approach to the inclusion of external ideas in the internal processes of design; this concept, combined with the Social Web, provides a collective action in idea generation. The ontologies as knowledge representation applied in semantic solutions provide an alternative to the management of ideas and support the Open Innovation process. These solutions automate the linked data and, thus, help the innovation process to apply a greater number of external ideas associated with the design goals. This article identifies and analyzes the main semantic solutions in the management of Open Innovation. The documents that comprise this analysis resulted from a systematic review. The results indicate the importance of the concept of Linked Data for the connection of people, processes and content in the Front End of innovation and the sharing of knowledge through semantic application in the openness to innovation.

Keywords: Open Innovation, Open Design, idea management, Knowledge engineering.
