A systematic approach to prevent counterfeits designed with KMDL®

The Chair of Business Information Systems and Electronic Government has designed an approach to prevent counterfeits based on KMDL®. This approach enables information and knowledge flows taking place between a company and its internal and external business partners to become visible, assessable and controllable. Unlike other prevention concepts this method aims at protecting companies before counterfeiting may even occur. The analysis does not merely offer generic prevention measures but rather situation specific actions to prevent product piracy.

The Knowledge Firewall Designer integrates the method in a user friendly software tool. More information about the method can be found here.
