(English)In: Journal of Infrastructure Systems, ISSN 1076-0342Article in journal (Other academic) Submitted
There are clearly many issues of concern for engineers, researchers, managers, politicians and other actors, involved in the complex tasks of operating transport infrastructures. These issues lead, with necessity, to a need to focus on managing knowledge. The purpose of this article is to promote adoption and continuous development of knowledge management theories for the sector of transport infrastructures. To fulfil this goal, this article relates knowledge management theories to the challenges that complicate safe and economic operation of the transport infrastructure facilities. The results offer the practitioners the framework for understanding benefits that result from implementation of knowledge management while illustrating re-examination of the established Swedish Transport Administration’s (STA) computer database, top-level strategic policies and a list of guidelines for implementation of knowledge management.
