The Knowledge Preservation Management (KPM) system allows for the capture, management, and Web-based access of manufacturing operations information. KPM also captures retirees' knowledge via transcript-enabled video-taped interviews, and with video data-mining advanced search capabilities. Access to this information is available directly to the operator on the factory floor or in an office, providing a complete, on-demand knowledge management and training capability.

KPM captures and manages video, animation, process maps, work instructions, and any other associated information digitally. It allows for information configuration control and long-term archival of a knowledge base, and can be access-controlled.

The efficient, transcript-based, jump-to-frame video data mining and retrieval system can be used by manufacturing and industrial companies, government agencies, and research and development entities.
