Abstract

This paper discusses the construction of an organisational scheme for application within a bespoke Information Management system, intended to support the retrieval of Business Information across a large engineering company. In order to mitigate viewpoint dependency and to provide additional context to support the valuation of retrieved information, a Faceted Classification scheme was developed. This paper discusses the approach taken to this development and how the ideas of information valuation were integrated.
