One approach to managing business knowledge is to generalize problems and solutions within the context they appear, to enable reuse. We have applied a pattern framework adopted from software development, in a project for managing business knowledge. The pattern development process has included the evaluation of the suitability of “candidate” patterns. We present criteria for considering and measuring suitability, since not all knowledge is suitable for reuse.
