[Objective] This paper aims to improve the quality and efficiency of concept design with the help of technology framework for semantic knowledge management based on knowledge flow in conceptual design. [Methods] First, we introduced knowledge flow theory to conceptual design based on design knowledge management research. Then, we modeled the knowledge flow in conceptual design from two perspectives. Finally, we established the technology framework for semantic knowledge management and analyzed its requirements, composition and functions. [Results] We built the knowledge flow reference model, the integration model of work and knowledge flows, as well as the semantic knowledge management framework. [Limitations] We built the technology framework at the macro level, which needs to be optimized at the micro level. [Conclusions] The proposed framework could systematically reveal the mechanism of modern design knowledge management, and indicate some future studies.
