In recent years there has been a growing interest among product development organizations to capitalize on engineering knowledge as their core competitive advantage for innovation. apturing, storing, retrieval,sharing and reusing of engineering knowledge from a wide range of enterprise memory systems have become crucial activities of knowledge management practice in competitive organizations. In light of a changing and dynamic enterprise definition, including a move towards Product-Service System (PSS) development,this paper discusses some of the limitations of current enterprise systems in reusing engineering knowledge across functional and corporate boundaries. Further, the paper illustrates how Web 2.0-based collaborative technologies can leverage cross-functional knowledge for new PSS development projects through an open,bottom-up, and collective sense-making approach to knowledge management.

Keywords: Cross-functional teams, Product-Service Systemdevelopment, Knowledge sharing, Knowledge life cycle, Engineering 2.0, Web 2.0.
