The effective management of knowledge as capital is considered essential to the success of engineering product/service systems. As Knowledge Management and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) practice gain industrial adoption the question of functional overlaps between both approaches becomes evident. This paper explores the interoperability between PLM and Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) as a strategy for engineering KM. The opinion of key KBE/PLM practitioners are systematically captured and
