10 different types of Knowledge Briefs

There is a whole discipline of Knowledge Management for Product Development, which defines 8 kinds of Knowledge Briefs.

You can find an overview of the discipline in the article "Teledyne Benthos Adapts the Toyota Product Development System; An inside look at one company’s journey" by Patricia Panchak

The article describes the use of Knowledge Briefs, a single sheet of 11- by-17-inch paper  (also known as an A3) on which is recorded all knowledge about a particular aspect of a specific product under development. The 8 different types of Knowledge Brief (KB) are listed below, and represent the 8 types of knowledge that should be captured to describe any particular product.

  1. Customer Interest KB 
  2. Proposal KB 
    • Proposal for Improvement KB 
    • Proposal for New Product KB 
    • Proposal for Solution Alternative KB 
    • Proposal for Technology Development KB
