There is no doubt that Body of Knowledge (BOK) published by AIChE will become the core of all the future academic and industrial activities in the field of chemical engineering. However, the establishment of BOK is just a starting point: BOK is not a BOOK; instead, it should be a system with a close loop of PDCA. The dedicated team should be set up to complete these regular and necessary tasks so that a dynamic BOK can benefit both the stakeholder and the audience. The presentation aims to provide a proposal of such kind of systematic approach and it is hoped to help the development of BOK in the future.
