We present MADAM, a methodology which allows the elicitation, capture, analysis and management of redesign knowledge. This area is characterised by the high reusability of problem solutions and is represented using three views: physical, functional and process. The methodology supports the analysis of the knowledge elicited and, therefore, the inconsistencies are detected. In addition, the knowledge is normalised so unnecessary (subsumed) parts and technical solutions can be removed with the aid of the expert. MADAM thus contributes towards better and faster redesign.
