Despite increasing knowledge intensity in product development, there is still a lack of understanding regarding the dynamic interrelations of knowledge types, stakeholders and artefacts in value creation processes.This dilemma counts also for engineering science as a discipline. This paper proposes a conceptual framework that allows for the analysis of dynamic knowledge flows in practical design processes and fundamental engineering research. Results from exemplary applications on two use cases will be used to illustrate its overall applicability and its potentials for science and industry.
