Preferred Abstract (Original): 

High technology enterprises must now continually reduce costs and develop better  products and services in order to sustain a competitive advantage in an endlessly changing business environment. High research and development (R&D) costs force high technology enterprises to select more carefully which technologies to invest in.  Advanced technology planning tools enable enterprises to make better strategic decisions. Knowledge of the technological changes relevant to an enterprise represents a critical issue in enhancing the performance of that enterprise and sustaining its competitive edge.
The creation of an ontology is usually the first step towards a knowledge management system. In this paper, we describe the framework of an ontology-based knowledge management system including design and application at a real case. The proposed system was developed in the Protégé environment, a generic system that is applicable to a variety of domain applications.
