Advanced Patent Analysis using TRIZ and Other Techniques
Patents are the most comprehensive source of information and knowledge. In the rapidly globalizing world of continuous change and cut-throat competition, every enterprise searches for competitive advantage. Patentinformation although realized by many as highly critical is not really tapped by enterprises at large, simply as theunderstanding of patents as a source of information and trigger for inventing the
is still in infancy.
Although there are many open tools and databasesvisualization of
patent data, there doesn’t seem to be
enough awareness of using patents for inventing the
Genrikh Altshuller, a Soviet Union naval patent officer afterSecond World War, started a systematic study of patents
his aim was to find out what makes a successful invention
Can there be an algorithm for inventing?
His search led him to develop a unique methodology called Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (acronym TRIZ in Russian).
In the process he also developed a systematic methodology to analyze and study patents.
TRIZ discovered technological evolutionary laws that surprisingly can be used to predict the future of an invention.
Crafitti Consulting has developed on the TRIZ way of doing patent analysis and reinforced it with othertechniques to build a comprehensive framework for Patent analysis.
For the first time this framework is offered in India.
The framework is based on following high level techniques
Understanding the level of an invention and a patent
Finding out the key contradictions the invention is solving
Function Diagrams/analysis of a patent/invention to make it more robust
Pruning or Trimming as a means of inventing
Technological Evolutionary Paths of the Invention
System Complexity Estimation
