Abstract: A method for the dynamic curation of manufacturing-related knowledge is proposed, based on the impact of successive paradigm introduction on the network structure within manufacturing companies. This draws together manufacturing system structure in terms of interacting component network types, the nature and consequences of knowledge silos and the underpinning dichotomous influence of language. The need and opportunities for an objective- rather than subjective paradigm-based view of manufacturing are identified, leading to a curation process in which paradigms and other knowledge specialisms are different viewpoints based on particular models of manufacturing processes and resources. The consequences of this are explored in terms of knowledge silo reduction, improved communication within component social- and information networks, increased operational resilience and better informed decision-making for future business.
