How do your companies manage their technical resources
So one of the things that pisses me off at work is that we have basically zilch in the form of knowledge centre for design guides, spreadsheets, tips'n'tricks, standard procedures, all that jazz. This is really stupid because we all just reinvent the wheel when we start working – have to ask senior guys for how to do an inspection, I've written all my own spreadsheets, found all my own research papers etc. In particular, all the old guys have picked up a bajillion little tricks in their career that take a long time to filter their way down to grads etc – I'd like to try to capture those and put them out there for others to see
I have put forward that we need to sort this out, but conveniently left out an actual idea on how to do it. It probably won't happen otherwise, so now I want to put forward some more concrete plans to how we can do it.
The problem is I'm pretty sure people will be lazy as shit if we do get some form of knowledge management program and just won't ever contribute to it – thoughts? Does anyone here have any experience with that sort of thing within their own firm? How do you guys handle your tech libraries and that sort of stuff?
