Context can be used to define which knowledge should be considered in a virtual reality environment in which a multidisciplinary team will discuss modifications or developments in design, product development, maintenance and production planning. It is desirable that objects within the virtual environment respond according to the context in which they are being used or they are likely to be used. A model of the context can be used as a filter for giving the right meaning to the current context and provide users with a greater control over knowledge. We propose a set of rules that have to be elaborated in order to allow the system to create a model of the context in which a design task is being carried out.
