This paper presents a tool for design knowledge management, focused on knowledge capture and re-use. Design knowledge is stored in process traces, which represent the successive steps leading to the solution (as opposed to just the solution). The tool is generic : it is independent both from the design method and from the application domain, thanks to the combined use of meta-modelling and case-based reasoning. We describe the tool and its application to a real Business Process Reengineering case.
