An analysis of recent research on knowledge technologies in engineering design shows that a majority deals with modelling issues. The interest in acquiring and retrieving knowledge seems to be dropping, whereas reuse gains more attention. There is little research on publishing and maintaining knowledge. These findings are confronted with current development in knowledge technologies and with industry needs. Future research will have to consider the development potential of technologies to reuse, publish and maintain knowledge. Acquisition, modelling and retrieval issues are though not to be neglected. Research should be carried out in multi-disciplinary projects. Industrial partners should consider the practical impacts of tools developed.
