PROTACTIVE – A systematic approach to prevent counterfeits by organizational, technological and knowledge management measures

This joined research project aims at the prevention, or at least significant delay and increase of efforts required to copy industrial products. With increasing globalization reacting to counterfeits by law has become difficult. Further, laws only apply after copies are in the market. Consequently this project addresses proactive means for protection. In a thorough analysis weaknesses as well as measures for improvements are developed in the areas of Product and production technology, Organization and business processes, Knowledge flows within and across organizations. The Research group for Knowledge Management at University of Potsdam focuses on the identification and evaluation of knowledge flows and the prevention or at least redesign in order to reduce counterfeits. Further a risk assessment of existing knowledge flows leads to a system, which allows controlled development, redesign and cutting of knowledge flows based on economic value. Ultimately, this module is part of the systematic approach to prevent counterfeits.
