Exploring the field
When mapping out the status of relevant technology in your field, three things are important:
- Determining how your current technology compares to the competition;
- Identifying which technologies are relevant to make further progress;
- Assessing the value of your technology.
How do we accomplish this?
We’ll assess which sources, such as patents, literature and databases to provide the most reliable information;
Then, we’ll build pools of expertise that encompass the technology or required functionality;
We will screen these pools for relevant information;
Afterwards, we will categorize the found technologies according to predefined categories and principles.
Finally, we will provide you with a detailed summary and conclusions.
