Innovation has been always seen as the competitive advantage of industrial companies, if not most of the organizations. Many researches were dedicated to improve the quality of innovation or to fasten its process. However, over the last three decades, knowledge management had gained an academic and practical importance towards strengthening the innovation process. In most of the studies, researchers were focusing on the technological and algorithmic dimensions of the knowledge management, rather than its epistemological dimension. Moreover, only very few studies focusing on the inter-organizational knowledge management, or the knowledge management with collaborative innovative projects. Therefore, there is a need for a comprehensive framework that can deals with a large organizations with multiple industries globally. In this article a new Knowledge Management Framework for collaborative Innovation Project (KMFCIP) is proposed. The KMFCIP will help the aviation industry in particular and large organization in general to collaborate in the production. It will provide a simplified plate form for knowledge sharing that will improve production and reduce the overall delivery time and production cost.
