The main aim of this study to merge knowledge flow activities with software development process Past models of flow of knowledge lacked in terms of software development and lacked on sharing right knowledge and lacked in-depth exploration of context modeling, which made those models less applicable. In addition now it attracts much consideration, attention in the knowledge management field. In a knowledge-based organization, knowledge workers need to acquire a variety of knowledge (information) about their tasks. Therefore; many organizations have built knowledge support plat forms to assist workers in meeting their knowledge-needs. These platforms help workers to identify and share knowledge in order to speed up organization innovation and improve employee Productivity. This research proposes a conceptual framework of context oriented flow of knowledge in software development aspects. In this framework, the context is seen as an inseparable element of flow of knowledge, which is regarding the creation, transformation as well as application of knowledge items. One of the main challenges is how to exploring knowledge flow, sharing knowledge in software development process. The main goal for this research to provide a framework to solve this challenge. In this research used questionnaire instrument with 21 people as they are from software development process environment, also in this study want to improve all factors, task, type of knowledge, nature of knowledge used in software development process during the flow of knowledge. Finally in this study validate the framework using experts review, 4 experts from academic and industrial result was great shows all phases in software development process and factors when active, moreover in this research verified the component by using cronpach alpha methods the result was good in acceptable rang 0.711.
