Abstract: Knowledge management (KM) has become an effective way of managing organization’s intellectual capital or, in other words, organization’s full experience, skills and knowledge that is relevant for more effective performance in future. The system presented in this paper consists of KM model (PC), mechatronic system (CNC machining center), user unit (PC, SMS) and data, information converter unit. KM model consists of knowledge bank compare, internet and network connection, commentary and management units. Operations of CNC Machining Center which is the main production unit of the system can be controlled both by the machine tool control panel and by e-mail, network from distant places. Also, the machine tool equipped with a lot of sensors so that the machine tool performance can be monitored and unexpected conditions can be controlled. Motivated by the literature discussed above, this paper presents a knowledge management structure of the machining system to provide competitiveness of the enterprise. In today's society can get access a immense volume of information from almost anywhere. But only information is not sufficiently. The feature of knowledge society is not that it has large amounts of information, but inside always it has to know more. To this information to become useful, it must be transformed into knowledge and then used efficiently in company management. What we propose in this paper is to provide manager, based knowledge he has, (economic and technical knowledge) a model of KM to his enterprise to be competitive. When there is a model that interconnects data and information, the model has the potential to be a knowledge. A such model, which is knowledge, provides when the model is well understood, a high level of certainty or prediction regarding how less static models will evolve over time. We intend to offer an enterprise manager a such model. KM provides the necessary information for solving the problems of adaptation, progress and competence of enterprise to cope with changes occurring in the environment.
