Based on the individual level,influencing factors of stakeholders knowledge sharing behavior in aircraft product development are discussed,which are participant degree,sharing intention,and sharing capability.And the relationship of these factors between explicit knowledge sharing behavior and tacit knowledge sharing behavior are analyzed theoretically,some assumptions are put forward,and a theorittcal study model is established.Then,using a structural equation model,the assumptions are validated through principal component analysis and model fitting for 215 sample data.Lastly,the conclusion is gained that participant degree,sharing intention,and sharing capability all have a significant positive effect on the explicit knowledge sharing behavior and tacit knowledge sharing behavior in aircraft product development.
Key words:    aircraft product development    principal component analysis    knowledge sharing behavior
