This paper proposes a knowledge warehouse architecture to enhance both DSS and knowledge management efforts. First, differences in data, information, and knowledge are discussed. Then, tacit and explicit knowledge, their relationship within the knowledge spiral, and their criticality to organizational knowledge creation and decision making are explored. Finally, a knowledge warehouse architecture is proposed which enhances all aspects of the knowledge spiral and the associated decision making processes.
