Knowledge management is the process of gathering, refining, organizing, and disseminating knowledge through which organizations generate value from their intellectual and knowledge-based assets.
In this paper we show how to simulate knowledge management processes in multi-agent systems in a process-based framework. The framework is related to computational models and uses epistemic logic to formalise individual and group knowledge. We rely on identification of crucial processes which support knowledge exchange and management. The processes include: knowledge sharing, knowledge use, knowledge lock and knowledge acquisition. We support transfer of knowledge both between individuals or groups of individuals within an organization.
