As a way of sustaining the investment, technology and industry knowledge captured in RISKGATE the current project assesses how RISKGATE information has contributed to a new ICMM/EMESRT web based knowledge management system for managing vehicle related hazards on mine sites. It describes the method by which the transfer of information has been cross referenced from the old to the new product. This providing a guide to use RISKGATE knowledge to support the build of other new KM systems; and so sustain the RISKGATE product.
The second part of this project was a scoping study to examine opportunities associated with transferring RISKGATE knowledge into other knowledge management systems. The first option concerns leveraging existing knowledge management capabilities and experience in building other design Philosophy topic control frameworks. The RISKGATE body of knowledge could be used early in the development of these new products, and so provide a context and base knowledge for their development via workshops with experts; with efficiencies gained. Lessons learned in the cross-checking exercise described in chapter three would enable the transfer of RISKGATE knowledge. Various metrics are used to estimate the extent to which an opportunity exists for a RISKGATE topic to support the build of another vehicle-related control frame approach.
A second option considered how knowledge held in RISKGATE could be used to support the build of a next generation knowledge management product. It proposes ways to identify gaps between the existing state of RISKGATE and the desired state of a new knowledge management product and identifies ways to address those gaps. As part of this, an option of enhancing the existing RISKGATE is considered.
