Since the industrial revolution, the automated acquisition and reuse of expert knowledge throughout the product life-cycle has been the holy grail of engineering. Yet recent findings [1, 2] determined in discussions with industry suggest that the uptake of such systems remains low, not least due to issues regarding implementation, costs, functionality, organizational implications, and ethics, amongst others [3, 4]. Indeed the requirements of different industrial sectors mean that there are still many challenges. For those that have embraced the technology, cost in terms of implementation and usability are key issues and many of the current tools and methods are labour-intensive,...
